We also have two designated donation opportunities:
Sponsor a Quilter for a Year: $100
You can sponsor a quilter for an entire year. The sponsorship covers the cost of the high-quality fabric, supplies, notions, tools (such as thread, quilt batting and replacement blades for rotary cutters) and sewing machine maintenance needed to continue our program.
Sponsor a Graduate Quilter Release Kit: $250
One of the most crucial times for our students is when they are released from Coffee Creek, and — in many cases — confront an uncertain future. Women who have successfully completed all three quilts and are being released are eligible to receive a quilting kit of tools and supplies, so they can continue to use their newly acquired quilting skills as they find their way in the outside world. Each kit includes a donated and serviced sewing machine, cutting mat, rotary cutter, basic notions, and the fabric and batting needed to complete a quilt.
Can you donate supplies or equipment?
If you are a company that makes or distributes quilting supplies, a quilting shop or quilting guild, or an individual with excess quilting stuff and would like to support our program with a donation, please contact us for information on what materials and tools would be of use. Some items we can use include: 100% cotton suitable for quilting (minimum 1-yard lengths); cotton batting (minimum size 60 by 80 inches); rotary cutters; cutting mats; thread, scissors, pins, needles and other quilting notions; portable sewing machines in good working condition. Please do not drop materials off at the prison. Contact us and we will work with you to arrange for pick-up if possible.
Are you a long-arm quilter?
You are needed to quilt our students’ third quilts. These are typically 60 x 80 in size. We provide the batting, deliver and pick up the quilts, and pay for the cost of thread.
Coffee Creek Quilters is registered with the IRS as a 501(c)(3) corporation, so your donations are 100 percent tax deductible. If you have any questions about making a donation, please contact us.
