Coffee Creek Quilters is honored to be featured on the website of Wisconsin-based quilting supply store Nancy’s Notions as an outlet for “Creative Kindness.” Creative Kindness is a book and DVD series that is part of Nancy Zieman’s long-running TV show, Sewing with Nancy (29 years and counting!). The book helps connect quilters and other fiber-artists with worthwhile projects for their creative energies around the world.
Seventeen children and teenagers attending a special summer camp for grieving children received comfort quilts from Coffee Creek Quilters in 2011. CCQ members – instructors and volunteers – challenged themselves to make the quilts for Camp Erin, part of the Providence Healthcare system, where young people learn to cope with the loss of a loved one. A total of 60 campers participated in the program.
