Material Girls Work Hard To Restock Comfort Quilt Inventory

Barbara Chmilar

The Robson Ranch Material Girls are scattered far and wide across both the U.S. and Canada, but all of our members will soon be coming together to support our charity work. The coming month is filled with all sorts of projects for fun as well as having some days of working on making quilt sandwiches to restock our charity and comfort quilt inventory.

Our Quilters: Cut with hope, Stitch with grace, Quilt with dreams, Bind with laughter, Share with love.

Last year as well as this coming year we are supporting the Family Advocacy Center for Children and providing the Eloy Police Department with two quilts for each police car for when they must remove a child from a home. The Material Girls has also supported the Eloy Senior Center for four years by annually providing a quilt or pillowcase to all of the residents. We also make comfort quilts for our own residents who have a serious illness or who have lost a spouse. The Material Girls has not forgotten our furry friends either and donate all our scraps toward making beds for the shelter at the Pinal County fairgrounds.

Please contact either Marge Doughty at 360-739-9990, margehultman@gmail.com or Doug Kant at 989-860-0692, dougakant@aol.com if you know a Robson resident who might need one.

The Material Girls welcomes all residents who have a love for sewing and/or quilting to join our club. Dues are $20 per year, and you can visit two times before dues are collected. Monies from our dues, profits from our raffle quilt ticket sales and the craft fairs support the purchase of fabrics and supplies we need to fulfill our ongoing commitments to our charities.
