Genesee Star Quilters
A guild for friendship, learning & charity

Charity & Volunteering


Donation Sewing Days


Donation quilts are constructed, as a group project, once a year after a guild meeting.  We call it a "Quilt-a-thon" and we sew quilt tops, layer and baste quilts, turn them inside-out so no binding is required, and quilt or tie the quilts.   In addition, donation quilts may be made at home and brought to guild meetings.  The donation quilt coordinator delivers all donated items to Carriage Town, Flint Crisis Pregnancy Center, Humane Society of Genesee County, Hurley Medical Center and/or The Shelter of Flint. 


1017 items were created and donated in 2017. 

Flint Crisis Pregnancy Center - 80 baby quilts, 80 burp cloths, 80 hats, 20 totes 
Humane Society - 69 pet pads
Hurley Medical Center- 200 hats, 6 grieving blankets
Shelter of Flint - 1 queen quilt, 2 full quilts, 42 twin quilts, 79 child quilts, 58 baby quilts, 48 pillows, 35 pillowcases, 22 burpcloths, 127, hats, 23 mittens,
