Quilt Square Workshop

September 27, 2014

Quilt

This workshop is an opportunity for those with no quilting experience to gain guidance in creating their square, as well as to meet our community of volunteers. Each year in April, during National Donate Life month, Donate Life Northwest unveils a new Threads of Life Quilt. The quilts are dedicated to the memory of those who gave the gift of life, sight and mobility. They also celebrate the lives of transplant recipients and offer hope to those awaiting transplant.  Each quilt is comprised of individually-designed squares created by people touched by organ, eye, and tissue donation.

Come out to this Lebanon area workshop being sponsored by the Santiam Scrappers Quilt Guild and create a square for this coming year's Threads of Life Quilt. Find out more and RSVP by clicking HERE.

National Donor Sabbath is observed annually on Friday through Sunday two weekends before Thanksgiving. This three-day observance seeks to include the days of worship for major religions practiced in the United States:

During National Donor Sabbath, faith leaders from many religions, donor families, transplant recipients, and donation and transplantation professionals participate in services and programs to increase awareness of the need for the lifesaving and enhancing gifts passed to others through transplantation and encourage people to sign up in their state registry as organ, eye, tissue, donors.

Are you interested in getting National Donor Sabbath materials to your place of worship this November? Request free materials using this form (HERE). A Donate Life Northwest staff will contact you soon to let you know your materials are on their way. Please note: Quantity of materials is based on event type and event attendance; all are subject to availability and our limited inventory.
