One thing about quilters is certain — we are a charitable bunch. For that reason, we want to help spread the word about the new Sew Social Project, a partnership between Camelot Fabrics and the Mothers of Professional Basketball Players (MPBP) that will provide lap quilts to Quilts for Kids, an organization dedicated to providing comfort to children of abuse and those with life-threatening illnesses.
Earlier this month the Sew Social Project was kicked off at a quilting party in Orlando, Florida, hosted by Quilty editor and Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting TV show host Mary Fons.
Quilters can participate by creating virtual quilt blocks on the Sew Social Project website. These designs will then be turned into actual quilts and donated to Quilts for Kids at the end of the year.
“We are truly excited about the newly formed relationship with Camelot Fabrics and the Mothers of Professional Basketball Players, Inc.,” said Lucille O’Neal, President of the MPBP and NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal’s mom. “Together we can show our love on a global scale with the various messages that will be sewn on the designed quilts made exclusively for the Quilts for Kids Organization. As a strong group of women we have an obligation to our communities and we strive to make true investments into the lives of our children through our charity works and fundraising efforts.”
