In the spring of 2019, Assistance League of Bellingham’s Anni Martinek, VP of Philanthropic Programs, was approached by a member of the Pieceable Quilters Guild of Lynden, WA.
Anni says, “They wanted to partner with us because of the wonderful work we do to serve those in our community. The guild members get together to sew, with tender love and prayers, the most beautiful quilts and lap blankets. How could we refuse their generous gesture?”
On Wednesday April 3, 2019, Billie Watts and Jo Byma, two members of the guild, presented Assistance League member volunteer Judy Mork with 42 of the most exquisite little works of art. The quilts were then delivered by Care Center Support program committee members to Grace Retirement Home (Ferndale), Shuksan Care Center (Bellingham) and St. Francis Convalescent Home (Bellingham). Yummy treats were also served to the residents at their Easter party.”
“Many thanks to everyone involved in accomplishing this joyful mission.”
