Each year our West Alabama Quilters Guild chooses one or two organizations to adopt for our summer Itch to Stitch Community Service Project. Quilt tops can be hand or machine pieced and then hand or machine quilted.
At our August 2016 meeting, we provided 121 quilts for the Turning Point Domestic Abuse and Sexual Assault Services.
In recent years, recipients of our quilts have included our Disaster Response Truck program by the Central Church of Christ, Easter Seals Nurse Family Partnership, VA Medical Center’s “Operation Baby Shower,” Turning Point Domestic Violence Shelter, Genesis House, The Tuscaloosa Children's Center, The Sheriff’s Department, DHR Foster Care Program, DCH Neonatal ICU, The Boyd School for Boys, DCH Cancer Treatment Center, and for distribution to those affected by the April 27th 2011 tornado.
