News from Kidz Quiltz

Help Kidz Quiltz to raise funds for building an upstairs bathroom in 2013! Many of their volunteers and visitors would appreciate not having to make “the trip” to the basement for restrooms. You can help reach their goal by spreading the word about yearly membership with Kidz Quiltz, which is still only $10.00 per year. If you decide to send the gift of donations, please mention on the memo line of your check and it will be added to the building fund. As always, your gifts are tax deductible.

Kidz Quiltz always looking for someone, or an organization, that can help us distribute our quilts to children in need. Give us a call or send an email to if you are interested in helping!
