Katie's Comforters Guild is Now on Seattle Children's Hospital's Guild Webpage

Katie's Comforters Guild is now on the Seattle Children's Hospital webpage! I have been watching for this - now people can find us online when they are searching for a quilting/crafting guild, and/or one headquartered in Kitsap County. Although you can be a member of Katie's Comforters Guild no matter where you live, it's nice to see us represented in print online with other guilds which do their own wonderful work.

Click on THIS LINK and scroll down (guilds are listed alphabetically) to find us, and share with your community!

Thanks to Jaimee M.

We received an email from a friend of our guild named Jaimee M. She has made six more quilts and blankets for our guild and is going to send them to Seattle Children's Hospital. First, though, she kindly took photos and included them in her email.
Thank you, Jaimee!
Each one of these will bless a patient (and family) with comfort and warmth!

Gratitude for Support from Liberty Bay Books

We are blessed to have an independent, locally-owned bookstore in our town. Liberty Bay Books may be located in a small town, but it has a HUGE heart! The store hosts a knitting group which kindly supports Katie's Comforters Guild with their time and talent. Here is their latest donation:
four knitted and crocheted blankets in a variety of colors and textures, all warm and cozy.
Thank you, Suzanne Droppert and 
Liberty Bay Books Knitters!

Lucile and Noble Do it Again!

Our dear Guild members, Lucile and Noble Nilsen, have done it again, donating 21 new quilts and blankets recently donated.
 When she is short of satin blanket binding, Lucile makes her own - sometimes combining different coordinating colors for a completely original look.
These are the quilts - the rest are fleece blankets, which I was not able to photograph.

Thank you, Lucile and Noble!
Happy (belated) Birthday wishes to you, Noble!
