Kent Quilters is a community quilt group which formed in the fall of 2014 at the Kent Memorial Library. Local women came together and created a log-cabin quilt to raise money for the library. We had so much fun with that project that we have continued, working with a different local nonprofit organization every year.
This year we are working with Kent Social Services on a Back to School fundraiser. Help us to raise money to provide backpacks, sneakers, and winter parkas for the children of financially challenged families in our Kent community for Fall 2019.
Take a walk through town using our map to visit our projects at local merchants. You can bid on any of the 15 handmade quilts on display - there are bid sheets at each location.
