482 quilts and counting

Agave Quilters Guild, based in Sun Lakes, has sewn and donated 482 quilts to children’s hospitals in the area! The guild has a history of giving back to the community and Sherri Tanner, Community Service Project Chair, has spearheaded the sewing of lap quilts for the young patients in area children’s hospitals since the guild’s 2015-16 season. Maricopa Integrated Hospital in Phoenix, and Diamond Children’s Hospital in Tucson have both received these labors of love, and the project continues. This important community project is funded in part with proceeds from the Agave Quilters Guild annual Quilt Show scheduled for April 1.
