The Brampton Quilters’ Guild has donated to  Brampton Meals on Wheels (placemats), Peel Manor (lap quilts), Children’s Aid Society, and the Canadian Federation of University Women in Brampton and Project Smile quilts for children with cancer.

All the donated items are made by guild members. The community projects committee works hard keeping the guild supplied with kits. The kits contain instructions and materials for the construction of each project. If you are interested in seeing pictures of some of the items donated, check out our photos on Flickr.
