Memory Makers Quilt Guild installed new board members on Nov. 1 and donated duffle bags to the Guardian Ad Litem program.
The board members are Barbara Hall (president), Barbara Kipnis-(vice president), Pat Waters and Nancy Sexton (co-chairman of programs), Mary Nouvertne (treasurer), and Carol Hewett (secretary).
The guild presented the 57 large duffle bags to Guardian Ad Litem representative Sarah Carrigan.
They will be given to children who are being removed from their homes, so the children have a place to put their clothes, toys and personal items.
Memory Makers Quilt Guild is a not-for-profit organization. Guild members sew and donate quilts and other items.
The guild donates to Guardian Ad Litem, Habitat for Humanity, Dress a Girl in Africa, Project Linus' blanket charity, Meals-on-Wheels, nursing homes and women’s shelters.
The guild also teaches a monthly 4-H sewing group and sponsor two sessions of 4-H Sewing Camp in the summer.
If you are a charity organization and would like to be considered for quilt donations, please let the guild know. The guild has a Facebook page.

Meetings consist of a program, a short business meeting, a show-and-tell and a light snack. Everyone is welcome. All levels of sewers are encouraged to join.
