What to do with those quilts!

August 2010

Greetings all you in Sew for Hope land!

Due to COVID-19, Sew for Hope will not to be meeting in September. Since many of you have been very busy making quilts, you are probably wondering what you are going to do with all that production. Well, the answer has arrived. Sleep in Heavenly Peace (SHP), otherwise known as the bunk bed project, has been able to start making beds again in a socially distanced manner and needs quilts to go with them. Quilts can be twin size or smaller. Some of the smaller quilts are given to younger brothers or sisters of the bed recipient. If you have finished quilts that you are willing to share with SHP, please drop them off directly at:

The Living Harvest Thrift Store
1219 West Tharpe Street
Tallahassee, FL 32303

They are open Monday through Saturday from 10am to 5pm.  It is always a good idea to call ahead to make sure someone is there and can handle a drop-off, especially if you do not want to go into the store physically.

Staying Safe

Hello Dear Friends,

We hope you’re all staying safe and feeling great.

As the number of Covid-19 cases is still on the rise in Leon County and Tallahassee, Sew for HOPE  has decided to postpone group meetings at St Stephen Lutheran until further notice.  In the meantime, our volunteers have made (and are continuing to make) thousands of face masks for friends, hospitals, and shelters. When the going gets tough, quilters make masks. But we’re also continuing to make blankets and quilts in our sewing rooms at home. Why? Because we know that sewing is our superpower.

Thanks for all you do,

The Sew for Hope Sisters

Sew for HOPE will suspend its work meetings!

Due to the restrictions recommended to slow down the spread of the coronavirus, Sew for HOPE work meetings at St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of each month are being suspended until further notice. We will send out an email when the CDC and Leon County health officials have deemed it safe to meet in groups again.

We expect that everyone will welcome more quilting time! Finally, a chance to finish those UFO’s!

Rescheduled Meeting

Sew for Hope has to reschedule our second  Saturday’s meeting to January 25th. St Stephens needed the room  for a funeral. We are rescheduling to Saturday, January 25th – same time. Brown bag lunch as usual at 11:30.

See you there!

January Work Days and Beyond!

Happy New Year Dear Friends,

We hope your holidays were merry and bright.

Sew for Hope will meet at St Stephen Lutheran Church, 2198 N. Meridian Road, in January on the 4th and 18th. We always meet from 10 – 3 with brown bag lunch from 11:30 – 12:30. We’re looking forward to getting back to work making blankets for kids in need. We appreciate the hard work that our volunteers have done… and all on behalf of kids they’ll probably never meet. Our volunteers are simply the best.

We thank St Stephen for the gift of work and storage space and hope that more members can find time to join us.
