Pay It Forward Charity Sew

Come spend a few hours with us on either Friday December 8th or Saturday December 9th, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. at Quilting by the Bay as we Pay It Forward and work on charity projects. We will be working on pet beds for the Animal Control Center and quilts for our new Trunk Quilt Program. A Trunk Quilt is a child size quilt that is made to go into the trunks of law enforcement vehicles. According to Haley who recently started this program in Panama City, the quilts are given by the officers to children they meet in the line of duty. When a child is involved in a call, the Trunk Quilt is meant to give them something to hold onto - something to find comfort in - and something they can keep that will, hopefully, bring a happy memory to what is otherwise a scary and unfamiliar situation. Haley has already coordinated with the Bay County Sheriff and Panama City Police Department and they are excited about these quilts.  Our Education Center will be open from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. We ask that you bring your sewing machine and basic quilting supplies like rulers, cutting mat, neutral thread and a rotary cutter.
