KAI donates scissors to CCQ

KAI donates scissors to CCQQuite a few CCQ instructors own KAI scissors and love them. So, when the scissors used in our prison quilting classes for the past 15 years started to wear out, we decided to give them a call. After hearing about our program, KAI donated 20 pairs of their 6 1/4″ sewing scissors. They also offered that we could purchase four pairs of their 8 1/2″ dressmaker shears at their wholesale price.

We are so grateful to KAI for their generous donation. According to their website, “KAI sewing scissors and shears are hand polished and balanced allowing for fatigue-free cutting on all types of fabrics. Soft ergonomic handle grips and hardened stainless steel blades offer superior cutting action for quilting, crafting or dressmaking.” KAI scissors are generally sold in quilt shops and are also available directly from kaiscissors.com.

Foresters donates fabric for patriotic quilts

Volunteers make quilt kits for VA HospitalThe Independent Order of Foresters is partnering with Coffee Creek Quilters to make quilts for patients at the Portland VA Medical Center. Foresters purchased enough patriotic-themed fabrics and quilt batting for 14 quilts. Then volunteers from Foresters and CCQ came together on March 15th for a kit-making session. Over the next few months, students in the quilting classes at Coffee Creek Correctional Facility will sew the quilts. When the quilts are finished, Foresters volunteers will deliver the throw-sized quilts to the veterans. Funding for the fabric purchase comes from the Foresters Community Grants program, an initiative that enables Foresters members to apply for grants of up to $2,500 to fund volunteer activities that are meaningful to them and to their own communities.
