Community Projects

Volunteers are always welcome to join us.

Community Projects are an opportunity for Guild members to give something back to the community. Members and friends of the Brampton Quilters’ Guild make dozens of items for donation each year. Kits are available to members at each General Meeting and Sewing Days. Members may also choose to make items for donation from their own stash based on the Size Guidelines below.
