Crayon Quilts comes to Lower Makefield

Newtown Quilters’ Guild is now partnering with the Lower Makefield Township Police Department through the guild’s “Crayon Quilts – Children Helping Children” Philanthropy Program. 

The program provides quilts for first responders to give to children whom they come upon in a difficult situation.

It’s a way to help kids going through a tough time.

The quilts feature words of encouragement sewn in with beautiful fabric squares of art work created by children for children.

“What a wonderful way to help children in distress as well as a great opportunity to teach other children the importance of giving,” said Chief Ken Coluzzi. “Police officers can also benefit by knowing they are comforting a child and lessening their fear. I am proud to become part of this program.”

Founded 30 years ago, Newtown Quilters’ Guild provides a welcoming community for quilters, bringing together many diverse interests through a shared love of their art. 

The guild holds monthly meetings at the Lower Makefield Township Community Center, on the third Tuesday of every month. 

Meetings begin at 7:00pm and feature either a guest speaker or a program and an opportunity for quilters to show their work. 

Guests are welcome to attend their meetings ($5 guest fee, unless otherwise noted), with the exception of their two members-only meetings in October and December.
