Service Programs

We do several different types of service projects throughout the year, including Project Linus, Stitching Sisters, Rogue Blanketeers, and Snuggled in Hope. Members are typically able to piece the quilt tops, offer their services in binding or quilting the projects, or can join us at a Charity Sew event to work together on our Service Program projects.

In exchange for members’ help with our service projects, they will earn raffle tickets for a drawing at the end of the year.  Three raffle tickets are available for each quilt – one each for piecing, quilting and binding the quilts. Members can also earn one raffle ticket for participating in a Charity Sew event.  At the end of the year, we draw for a gift certificate towards workshops or retreats put on by the Common Threads Quilt Guild.

Past Programs

We’ve retired some of our Service Programs, but they’re still close to our heart. Here are a few of them:

Jefferson Elementary School

Our guild helped the students of Jefferson Elementary School with their charity work by making patchwork cover for pillows.  The younger students stuffed the pillows, and then the older students would sew them closed. The pillows were given to children at Nationwide Children’s Hospital on Valentine’s Day. Jefferson Elementary School has since retired the program.

Quilts of Valor

Our guild previously provided finished quilts to the Quilts of Valor program through coordinating & cutting fabrics, piecing quilt tops, quilting and binding many quilts. The mission of the QOV Foundation is to cover ALL those service members and veterans touched by war with Wartime Quilts called Quilts of Valor (QOVs).We retired our guild’s participation from this program to focus on our new program for Columbus Honor Flight.

Columbus Honor Flight

The Honor Flight is a gifted trip for our nation’s senior veterans to our capital, Washington, DC. It’s a chance for them to visit significant memorials, connect with fellow vets and share their stories.

The veterans are given a quilt on their return trip as a souvenir of the trip and our guild is now a part of this, to help welcome these folks back home. The group we are working with on these quilts is called HFC: Blankets of Love.
