The New Washington Community Quilters is a group of 10 – 15 women who, in normal times, meet monthly at St. John’s Lutheran Church in New Washington, a small town in Crawford County, Ohio, to assemble and knot blankets and share a potluck lunch.
They donate over 200 blankets a year to various local organizations that serve children in foster care and other children in need, including Harmony House, Crawford County Job and Family Services, Salvation Army, Red Cross, BORN, and WIC.
The group especially enjoys making blankets, bibs, sleep sacks and other items for infants and preschoolers.
Although the group has not been meeting at the church since March, they continue to sew at home and hope to resume monthly meetings soon.
We are very grateful for this group of dedicated quilters who work with My Very Own Blanket and other non-profit organizations to make a difference in their community.
