Quilt shops hold a unique opportunity to make a significant impact on their communities. By connecting with your valued customers, you have the power to inspire them to be a part of something truly exceptional – our annual Donation Quilt Drive.

If you own a quilt shop and would like to be a part of our Donation Quilt Drive in 2024, there are numerous ways to contribute. You can host charity sewing days, offer classes to teach simple quilts for donation, and be a collection point for the quilt donations.

Many children in foster care often receive their few possessions in trash bags or don’t have any. possessions at all. This is why we’ve partnered with Comfort Cases. Providing warm and comforting quilts as part of their cases offers these children a much-needed sense of security and comfort during their challenging times.

What Quilts to Donate

We welcome your donations of kid-friendly quilts, so feel free to use your preferred quilt or blanket pattern. Big kids’ quilts should be 50″ x 60″, and baby quilts 30″ x 40″ according to Comfort Cases. Slight variations in size are acceptable.

Please use high-quality and appropriate fabrics for your donation quilts, the kind you’d choose for your own children or grandchildren. This ensures that the children who receive these quilts feel cherished and loved.

About Comfort Cases

I’ve partnered with Comfort Cases, a nationwide nonprofit dedicated to supplying care packages to foster children, offering hope and dignity to kids within the U.S. foster care system, spanning all 50 states.

At times, shops may wish to ensure that their quilts benefit children in their own community. With Comfort Cases, it’s a straightforward process – you can request the specific town or state where you’d like your donations to be directed, and they will make every effort to honor that preference.

Comfort Cases makes it easy to get your donations to them. They have partnered with GiveBackBox, offering $20 shipping labels for packages weighing up to 70 pounds, shipped via USPS or UPS within the USA. More info here.
