Quilters working together for the victims of the Dixie Fire

On Sept. 30, Cheryl Johnson, Pauline Haddox and Maureen Kelly from Comfort Quilts met in town to deliver 19 quilts, four quilt tops plus three boxes of quilts donated by Antelope Valley Quilt Association to Deanna, a representative from the Ridgecrest Quilt Guild. The quilts made will be given to victims of the Dixie Fire.

Comfort Quilts is a group of ladies who are part of the Tehachapi Mountain Quilters. These generous volunteers donate their time to make quilts to help others in need. They get together once a month to sew and have a scrumptious pot luck lunch. The material for the quilts is donated by the community. If you would like to join, they would love to have you. Contact Maureen at (714) 308-6005. Leave a message and you will receive a return call.

If you are unable to join the group and would like to help, they accept monetary donations to purchase batting and thread. Also if you use Amazon, you can go to smile.amazon.com to designate "Tehachapi Mountain Quilters" as your charitable designee. This will help them to make more quilts for those in need.
