Each year our guild members make and donate over 400 placemats to be distributed to clients of Meals on Wheels in Thunder Bay. In 2020/2021 we are pleased that we have been able to broaden our outreach to include the residents of the Sister Leila Greco facility and the PR Cook facility.
These placemats are a great opportunity for you to try a new technique, practice your machine quilting and binding skills, use up some scraps and get a satisfying “quick fix” of sewing. Recommended size for donated placemats is 12” x 18”. We have guild labels to be sewn in under the binding on the back of the placemats.

There are lots of new patterns for placemats to try below. The PDF of the Pattern Index is available for download here Placemat pattern index-Feb2021 v2. If you need some labels, please contact Doris (firstname.lastname@example.org ) to make arrangements to get a supply.
