Quilters are a generous bunch! All members are able, but not obligated, to participate in our community giving initiatives. Working together, even remotely, or joining the Community Giving Committee, is a great way to get to know your fellow quilters and wrap someone in our community with a great big quilty hug!
The Calgary Modern Quilt Guild has currently paused donations of supplies, including fabric and materials. If you have quilting supplies to donate, we suggest you contact Ujamaa Grandmas for details on their fabric and yarn sale.

Want to partner with the Calgary Modern Quilt Guild?
The Calgary MQG Community Giving Committee has a limited ability to consider requests from organized not-for-profit groups, who demonstrate that they are committed to building a better world for everyone. Unfortunately we are unable to consider requests from individuals
