Here at TLC-Quilting we take pride in the community that we live in and strive to help in any way possible.
CRC - PinnacleHealth Children’s Resource Center
Our heart is in helping people who need love from a quilt. When a Customer takes a class on how to use one of our Long-Arm Quilting Machine they learn on a quilt that we then donate to abused children at the CRC in Harrisburg. When we hold a binding class the students bind these quilts. These quilts don’t only help our Customers learn and grow in their skills, but they help put a smile and make children feel safe and loved.
Some of our amazing Customers even bring in their own quilts and pillow cases that they have made to be donated to the children at CRC.
If you are interested in donating or helping these children, please contact us at the store or you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Quilts of Valor (QOV) TLC Stars and Stripes
Quilts of Valor is an amazing organization who makes it their mission to cover Service Members and Veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor.
Once a Service Member or Veteran has been nominated then the local QOV group will pick a quilt and award it to the nominee. The group coordinator will then award the quilt to the Service Member or Veteran in a small ceremony. We will wrap them in their new quilt and let them know the meaning behind QOV. The ceremony is very touching and the Service Members and Veterans are very appreciative of what QOV does for them.
Our local group, TLC Stars and Stripes, meets once a month on the 4th Thursday of each month at TLC-Quilting. Our group works towards using each Members strengths. If you like cutting or piecing then you can do that. If you like quilting the tops then you can do that as well. We also have a group who works on binding. No matter what your skill level we have a spot for you!
To find out more about Quilts of Valor check out the QOV website.
If you have any questions about our local group TLC Stars and Stripes you can contact our store. The Annual fee to join is $10.
We would love to see you at our next meeting!
