Coastal Quilters Spring Workshops
All Workshops are held at The Scotty Culp Auditorium, 565 Cassia Blvd. Satellite Beach, from 9:30 - 3:00.
May 21 -"A Piece of the Picture": Working in groups, we are going to create and assemble a pictorial quilt. Each group receives one portion of the photo and a stack of fabrics. The challenge is to create a look-alike using any techniques the group decides. When placed alongside all the other sections, one skinny quilt becomes part of a beautiful picture! Bring a sense of adventure along with your machine, general sewing supplies, and lunch.
Since 2011, 1501 quilts have been given to homeless, needy, and seriously ill children. This November, 185 quilts were distributed to homeless children in elementary schools in Palm Bay, Melbourne, and Cocoa with the assistance of the Guidance Counselors. The QAKH project continues with sew-ins at Buena Vida Estates on the third Thursday of each month. Summer community quilt-ins will be held in July and August at Scotty Culp auditorium in Satellite Beach. Contact us if you have questions.
Persons wishing to donate funds or high quality quilting cotton fabrics may reach out by contacting us through this site. All assistance is deeply appreciated and goes to the project. No Administrative fees are taken.
Click on the video below for the August 2014 quilt-in. Though the woman at the beginning is identified as Sheryl Milner, QAKH's coordinator, it is actually Margie Engel. Margie will quickly tell you that Sheryl is much better looking, and younger too! The real treat is seeing Lydia Howald, one of our senior campers.
