As the Church responds to humanitarian needs worldwide, the need for specific types of donations varies. Currently, the items listed below would be the most beneficial.
SINGLE AND FULL SIZE QUILTS
The Humanitarian Center has received sufficient donations for the following items: sock dolls, receiving blankets, girls' hair accessories, and stuffed balls. (ABC books and picture books have been discontinued.)
FYI: Sizes: Single quilts are 72" x 90" and full size quilts are 90" x 90"
Suggested materials: Cotton, cotton-poly blend or flannel (pre-shrunk if necessary). Denim and corduroy are NOT preferred. 8 oz. bonded poly batting is recommended for tied quilts. 3 or 4 ply yarn or heavy Cro-sheen is recommended.
Quilts may be tied or quilted by hand or machine. Use 1/2" seams on pieced quilts. Ties should be about 4" apart. Square knot or international stitch is preferred. Check underneath to make sure there are no knots. Please ensure that the ties cannot be pulled out.
Binding should be carefully done by hand or machine. Two suggested methods are the pillow case method and the roll method.
