Cradle Quilts

Cradle Quilts is responsible for making or obtaining the cradle quilts, pillows, mattresses and dolls to present to the San Joaquin Fine Woodworkers Association (Woodworkers) in December. The Woodworkers pair our quilts with a wooden hand made cradle that they then give to underprivileged young girls in our community at Christmas.

 

Little Quilts

Little quilts is responsible for the making and delivery of the quilts to the community.
Little Quilts are generally 40 inches by 50 inches.

Little Quilts meets every Tuesday, 10 am to noon at the Hillside Community Church,

1091 W Linda Vista Ave., Porterville, CA

 

Porterville Celebrates Reading

Each year in April Porterville Celebrates Reading is held at Veteran's Park. Approximately 40 booths are run by local schools, the Porterville Library, Friends of the Library, and other local organizations, including Porterville Quilters Club. Besides reading to the children, there are book-related activities and games to promote literacy and fun.

 

Scholarships

Porterville Quilters award a scholarship each year to qualified high school graduates in our area planning to attend college in order to further their education and promote fiber arts. Applicants with experience and interest in fiber arts & community service are given first priority. Grades & school activities are also considered when selecting a scholarship recipient.
To apply students, need to contact their scholarship programs at their high school. The application form to submit to Porterville Quilters Club is included here.  Applications are due April 1.

 

Block of the Month (BOM)


Every month except December the Club has a Block of the Month where a block and instructions are presented.  This program is open only to members.  Members sign in and pay $1.00 for the block and $.25 for the instructions only.  At the following regular meeting members return with the completed block and enter a raffle to win all the completed blocks.  It's a great way to learn how to do sew new blocks and new techniques.

 

Local Heroes


Porterville Quilters Club honors Local Heroes (veterans) who have served our country by making and presenting quilts made by our members.  Many of the veterans attend our meeting to receive the quilt, which is an honor for the club. 
If members know of a deserving veteran to receive a quilt, fill out the "Local Heroes Request Form" and give to the Club president to add to Local Heroes list.  As the quilts are completed, they are distributed in the order in which they are listed. 
A workshop to complete quilts for this program will be held after the July regular meeting.
