Rocket City Modern Quilt Guild offers multiple avenues for "doing good" by engaging with and serving our community. We strive to keep the projects beginner friendly so that everyone is able to participate, no matter their experience. If you have any questions or would like to serve on this committee, please reach out to the Community Outreach Chair.
We donate sewn pillowcases to the North Alabama Foster Closet and coordinate with them to personalize them for the children currently in foster care.
You may use any method you wish to make your pillowcase. We do ask that the inside seams are reinforced by serging or with French seams to better withstand repeated washing.

Our guild collects and sews quilts to donate to our local St. Jude's affiliate clinic at Huntsville Hospital. They serve children from 0-18, so we strive to provide a wide variety of styles, fabrics, and designs. Novelty prints are perennially popular. Larger sized quilts should be aimed at older kids.
