Charity Central is a committee of WSQ that provides quilts to charitable organizations in Spokane. We accept donations of fabric, batting, quilt tops, and finished quilts. We provide batting when we can and pass tops and backs onto those willing to quilt them. We provide fabric and kits to those who would like to piece quilt tops and quilts that need binding to those willing to do that. We sell some of our fabric and other donated items at the quarterly membership meetings to raise funds. Charity Central is considered to be self-supporting and so tries to raise as much money through fundraising as we are budgeted for the year.
We have committee meetings through the year to sort and cut fabric, make quilt kits, make backings for quilts and cut batting for quilts. We donate quilts to various charitable organizations and keep track of these donations. We donate quilts kits to the Inland Northwest Machine Quilters for their annual quilting challenge. We also provide them with a yearly raffle quilt, if requested. We bring “to be quilted” kits to INMQ membership meetings. INMQ members quilt for us.
We sponsor and staff the Mountain of Quilts booth at the WSQ annual Quilt Show.
