CCQ student quilts are on display at the Wilsonville Library during the entire month of July. In addition to the quilts, the exhibit offers a peek into the prison classroom with a new slide show displaying continuously on a digital picture frame. Instructor-made quilts are also on display and available for purchase at the library. The Wilsonville Library is located at 8200 SW Wilsonville Road, Wilsonville, OR. Library hours are posted on the library’s website.
Ten instructor-made quilts will be part of a quilt show at Summerfield Estates, a retirment community in Tigard. The beautiful quilt shown here was made by Nancy Dudley, one of the instructors in our Tuesday morning class. The quilts will be available for purchase at prices ranging from $50 to $200 as part of CCQ’s ongoing fundraising efforts. Other quilts in the show were made by members of Tualatin Valley Quilt Guild and residents of Summerfield Estates. The show will be one day only on Thursday, June 28, 10 am to 2 pm. Summerfield Estates is located at 11205 SW Summerfield Drive, Tigard, Oregon.
Coffee Creek Quilters donates more than 150 student-made quilts every year to a variety of organizations. This year our instructors and members made quilts for donation too. Forty-two kids attending a special summer camp for grieving children will receive member-made comfort quilts from CCQ. We made the quilts for Camp Erin, where young people learn to cope with the loss of a loved one. Camp Erin is a national program funded by the Moyer Foundation. Camps are held in 18 cities throughout the country and open to children between the ages of 6 and 17. The camp is free for kids; funding comes from the Moyer Foundation and local groups. Oregon’s Camp Erin is administered by the Providence Foundation and will take place this year at Camp Kuratli in Boring, OR, August 17-19.
