Bonnie, one of our quilters (and the author of this post) said, "As this year comes to an end, I would again like to thank you all for being such a important part of WOCS... We have delivered quilts, pillows, totes and all kinds of goodies to the Seniors and children all year long. The items that are made are amazing, so much love goes into each and every piece that is crafted,  sewn or stitched.. I am so glad to be part of this group that shares their talents to those who need a smile. Many of our members have encountered personal problems or medical issues of their own this year, yet they continue to share their time and talents with others.  Here is wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Autumn Quilt Theme





Our current theme for a quilt (or two) is Autumn.  The senior who receives this gift will be able to cuddle under this quilt on cold winter evenings.  Some of our cross stitchers are still working on their squares.  



If you would like to join us in stitching some of these quilt themes, please go to our website and join. If you think you might like to join but have too many obligations right now, put our name, World of Charity Stitching, on your computer calender as a reminder and join in the stitching in the new year.  It is a lot of fun, very rewarding, and relaxing. 

We create a lot of beautiful quilts, but we couldn't do that without the help of so many of our stitching and quilting members.  

If you have any questions, please post on this site and we will try to answer as soon as possible.

A Young Boy Who Loves to Cross Stitch

Gavin, who is 10 years old, is a very caring, giving child.  He is in the 4th grade, is very involved with Cub Scouts, wants to learn to play the guitar, enjoys playing baseball, and really enjoys playing with his cousins now that his family has moved to WA. 

Gavin's mom, Charity, has been stitching for our group, World of Charity Stitching, since 2010.   Gavin started cross stitching when he was seven years old and has become quite the expert stitcher.   Recently he has stitched (along with his mom) several farm squares that they have donated to our group, to be made into a quilt for a child.

These are the farm squares stitched by Gavin and his mom, Charity: 
 
We hope that Gavin will continue to stitch as he gets older and will continue to enjoy it.

Stitcher's Alphabet

This cute little stitching girl is a free chart from Stitching the Night Away, by Loretta Oliver.  Our Yahoo group, World of Charity Stitching, is stitching the complete alphabet to be made into a quilt for a senior citizen in a care facility.  

Many of the squares are already finished and mailed to the quilter, but some of the members are still working on their pieces.  

Our group welcomes new members to join in the fun of doing what they love-stitching.

Special Ballerina Quilt


Our group has recently received a special request by one of our members for a quilt for a little girl, Carolyn (age 4), who is very ill with cancer and is undergoing chemotherapy at a local hospital.   We are creating a Ballerina Quilt for her in the hopes that it will bring a little comfort to her and her family while they go through this very difficult time.   


The new database was opened on Sunday, Sept. 22nd and as of Sept. 25th, we already have 11 Ballerina squares being stitched by our members.  Isn't that great?  We are fortunate to have such a caring, giving group.

There are already two squares finished for this quilt theme and other members are working hard on getting their stitching done so this quilt can be created in as little time as possible.  

It usually takes between 6 and 8 months to complete a quilt from start to finish, but since this is a special request for a very sick little girl, we are asking members to do their best to finish their squares by Nov. 1st so the quilt can be put together quickly.

This post will be updated as squares are finished by members and the finished quilt will be posted at a later date. 

If you love to stitch, please join us in helping to bring a smile to the faces of those less fortunate.  It is a wonderful feeling.

A QUILT FOR MITCHELL

This beautiful quilt was delivered today to Mitchell at Sacred Heart Children's Hospital in Spokane WA.  Mitchell is a very strong 14 year old boy with Leukemia and is about to head to Seattle for a bone marrow transplant.  Mitchell has been through so much since diagnosed in 2011 and we all hope this quilt brings him many moments of peace and happiness.


We don't have a photo of Mitchell because right now he is undergoing more chemo but you can read all about him on Facebook.  Click here.  Mitchell, if you should read this, this group of ladies hope and pray this quilt carries you through your upcoming transplant!

Star Design Stitch-a-Long


Isn't this Star beautiful?  It is one of the newest designs our group is stitching as a Stitch-a-Long.  We do these several times a year.  A pattern is chosen and everyone stitches the same design, using whatever color fabric and threads they choose.  The finished squares are made into one or two quilts to be donated to charity.


The designs were created by Renate, who lives in Germany.  Renate has a lot of free charts that she shares with her readers.  Please visit Renate's blog to see some of her fabulous designs.

There are 20 members who signed up to stitch for this quilt theme, so there should be enough squares to make two beautiful quilts for charity.
 
If you enjoy cross stitching, won't you join us in helping to create these squares for charity.
