South Sacramento Quilts for Kids

We make quilts for kids in crisis from donated and discontinued fabric.

Northern California Fire Relief 

We have donated 111 quilts to Lake County.

After sending out a plea for help to our nation-wide chapters, we have received 100 quilts from across the country for delivery to Calaveras County, including a generous donation from Baton Rouge, LA - an area that understands disaster.  A wet winter is coming and a lot of these families have been left with nothing and are still living in tents. Maureen Elliott of Pinnacle Realty in Calaveras County has coordinated our donations. 

Sorting through the quilts. 

We also have made our usual Fall donation to Mustard Seed School for homeless children and are gearing up for our annual donation to Rosie Carollo's Toy Drive (https://www.facebook.com/Rosies-Toy-Drive-182968201789124/)

 We have the most wonderful group of quilting volunteers ever!!  

Our goal - 2015 Quilts delivered by the end of 2015

The numbers are right! By the end of 2015 we will have been making quilts for 5 years to comfort local children in hospitals, homeless shelters, children's homes, and foster care.

  Our latest goal is to  have donated 2015 quilts by New Year's Eve 2015. We are just 56 quilts        away from our goal. 

  You can help! Make quilts on your own or from our kits, donate fabrics or other sewing notions, let us know of kids in need.

A Message from Malissa Enea

“Who wants to make a quilt for sick children?” Cathy Carpenter asked me.

She had me at ‘sick children’. That was all I had to hear, and I knew
I’d be making my first quilt. 
I had never quilted before, but she talked me
into taking a kit provided by Quilts for Kids headquarters. She told me how
easy it was, and that it was for a good cause. I could sew a straight line and
follow a pattern…but an entire 
quilt?!?
What had I gotten myself into? (
