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.
