The annual Country Store and Fabric Sale is one of our main fundraising events of the year, and your quilt-related donations are truly appreciated. We have a small group of hard-working members who act as our donation committee.  The committee screens all donations carefully to determine if the items are suitable for resale.  Items not suitable for our purposes cannot be accepted.   

To donate, click the button below to access an online form where you can provide your contact information and a description of the items you wish to donate.  A member of the donations committee will call you to discuss the items and provide instructions for pickup or drop off of the donated goods.  Non-member donations may not be dropped off without prior approval of the donation committee.
