Getting to know.... World of Charity Stitching


World of Charity Stitching
Have you heard of World of Charity Stitching? If not, I'd like to take a minute to introduce you to this lovely group of stitchers using their gifts and talents to love on others! They are doing some really great things and touching a lot of lives through their creations!
Here's a short Q&A interview to give you a glimpse. 

Q: When did World of Charity Stitching begin and what was the inspiration behind it?
A: The group was started in 2007 as an offshoot of another charity stitching group.  Initially we were a cross stitching and quilting group, but we have evolved and now produce hand made gifts for children and seniors, including quilts, totes, cards, stuffed animals and much more.

Q: What are some of the projects WOCS has completed?
A: We have over the years delivered numerous quilts to various charities in the USA and the UK.  Currently we support Favor House, Ronald McDonald House, and Century Care Center in Florida and Sacred Heart Hospital in Spokane.  Last year we delivered 29 quilts, 49 therapy pillows, 37 wheelchair/walker bags, 66 totes, and 68 other hand made gift items.

Q: Do you have a project that was especially meaningful for you? If so which and why?
A: We have filled several quilt requests for specific people who have had major health challenges.

Q: How can others, like me, get involved?
A: We welcome new members to our Yahoo group if they want to stitch, quilt, sew, do crafts, etc. but if not, we welcome donations of quilting supplies, fabrics, books, and of course money to buy supplies and help toward postage.

Now a glimpse at some of their beautiful work...

I hope you'll take time to get to know more about WOCS and perhaps even find out how you can support their efforts! You can find them in all of these convenient places...
