I am the volunteer coordinator for our local quilting guild, Artful Hands Quilting Guild. I enjoy making quilts for "Birthday Wishes" of Hanover, who give them to children in homeless shelters, and the Veterans of Canton, MA and Project Linus Charity every year. I have also made many pillowcases for the "Million Pillowcase" charity drive for cancer, CONKERCANCER group.

Please feel free to contact me with any custom requests. If you have a gorgeous fabric that you would like to have me use in a tote bag or basket, please send me a picture and we can convo about the options. If you need to match a dress or skirt or other items, please send me a picture and we can convo about the options to make a coordinating item.
