Service

Do you look for ways to help others using your sewing and needlework skills?  We provide many opportunities to help members in our community.

One of the beneficiaries is the Rush Neonatal Unit, providing them with crocheted and knitted hats, preemie quilts, and isolate covers.

We also donate to WINGS and the YWCA, shelters for abused women, making tote bags, pillowcases, and quilts.  Winchester House in Libertyville will soon be receiving 35 lap quilts made by our Guild for their residents.  300 Literacy bags were made for Wheeling Township's "Make A Difference Day" for children with special needs for the last 3 years.  

Members of the Guild donate the majority of the material we use during Service Days which are held twice a month at Jeanette Page's home in Northbrook, Il.  The Guild, as well, is financially supportive of needs we purchase to supplement donations. Several sewing machines and sergers are available for volunteers to use.  Kits are organized or assembled for our members to bring home to sew, while others are busy sewing, cutting, and ironing while having a great time.  We are always open for suggestions of other needs that you may be aware of in your community.  

For more information you may contact Nancy Calandra or Jeanette Page.
