Lady’s Island Middle School’s Sewing & Quilting Club has been adopted by the Sea Island Quilters, a local quilting guild. The quilting guild’s donations have included fabric, notions and sewing machines. In addition guild members have been donating their own time working with the students and sharing their own knowledge and expertise in the area of quilting and sewing.
Thanks to the guild’s generosity, students are learning how to sew and have been working on projects for themselves and others. Some completed projects include pillows, pin cushions, and clutch bags. Currently students are making lap quilts for themselves and quilts for children which will be donated to a local community organization. The generosity of Sea Island Quilters is providing LIMS students with the opportunity to learn new skills, and pay it forward by donating quilts as a community service project.
