Cuddle Quilt Program
Our regular cuddle quilt sewing will be at the Oakhurst Library on the third Wednesday of the month from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. This room has its own entrance to the right of the main library, as you are facing the building. Bring your sewing machine, thread & etc. and we will provide the kits! Or create your own quilt to work on. Hope to see you there! Please contact Patty Cramer or Maria Ciccarelli for more information.
The Cuddle Quilts program provides donations of quilts to local hospitals, agencies and individuals that would benefit from the comfort of a warm & cheerful quilt, handmade by the caring members of the Sierra Mountain Quilters Association.
This charity group was established in 1981. Recipients include Oakhurst Healthcare & Wellness Center, Oakhurst Sheriff’s office, Valley Children’s Hospital, Ronald McDonald house, Helping Hands, Hinds Hospice, and Mountain Crisis Services.
The Cuddle Quilts program has also reached out statewide to provide comfort to victims of wildfires in other parts of California. SMQA awards college scholarships to local high school seniors interested in the fiber arts.
If you would like to participate, you should know that quilt kits and instructions are free! You just supply the thread and the elbow grease. You’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that your finished quilt will have provided warmth and comfort to someone in need.
