Laura Freeman is now collecting for the 2017 Native American Quilt Collection, which is co-sponsored by the Pine Needles Quilters. This year they will be donating to the Penobscot Reservation in the Orono/Indian Island area.
As in past years, they are collecting new quilts, blankets, afghans and fleece throws from baby to full size. Also needed are new knitted items for adults, children and babies. Baby clothes, diapers and other necessary items for a baby are requested. Of course, if you cannot donate an item, a cash donation to go towards an emergency fuel fund would be very welcomed.
Other items need for baby are sleeper suits, onesies and t-shirts, baby booties and socks, disposable diapers and wipes, diaper bags, crib and receiving blankets, cotton baby caps, scratch mittens and nail clippers, washcloths and baby soap, rash ointment and baby lotion, ear and nose syringe, baby bottles and brushes, hair brush and comb sets, pacifier and bibs and soft plush toys.
Mom can also use lotion, toothbrush and toothpaste, deodorant, shampoo and conditioner, body wash, comb and toiletry bags.
Please drop of your quilts by the end of September so that they can deliver to the reservation in early October.
