Whether a beginner or experienced quilter, what a great way to practice your skills and give back to your community at the same time.
Community Quilts Group volunteers will put a package together for you to piece at home, or you may have a quilt already finished that you wish to donate. Contact the Community Quilts group to ask what they need. You can also help by donating 100% cotton fabric or flannel, unused quilt blocks or batting.

BEADS OF COURAGE Project - 2017

helps children, coping with serious illness, their families and clinicians, by helping them to record, tell and own their story of courage through beads. Every bead tells a story of strength, honor and hope.
Langley Quilters' Guild members have joined other quilters across Canada and USA to provide the needed Fabric Bead Bags. Instructions for making the bags are here.


 Kourageous Kids Project - 2014

The Calendar pictures are posted here. They are another great collection of artworks by these children!

Completed quilts for the 2014 Calendar are due in APRIL and will be presented to Childrens Hospital in May.



Meals on Wheels Placemats - Every November

Each Dec., Rita, on behalf of our guild, hands over to Wendy at the Meals-on-Wheels Langley office the placemats made by our Guild this year.


Quilts of Valour - Canada

Four years ago a group of Quilters across Canada suggested that Canadian Quilters provide quilts for injured Canadian Military personnel returning from the mission in Afghanistan. In western Canada the quilts go to rehabilitation centers in Vancouver, Victoria, and Edmonton for distribution. Each year we donate several single bed size quilts to this cause as a Guild endeavor, or from small satellite groups. Read more.
