Mittens Stitch-A-Long




The members of World of Charity Stitching are having a Stitch A Long, stitching these cute little mittens, to be made into a quilt. Aren't they adorable? The chart is a freebie from Anne at http://anne-les-petites-croix.pagesperso-orange.fr/

If you enjoy stitching for charity, you can join our group at any time. We are always stitching new themes for quilts.

Sew Be It Quilt Theme

We are currently working on a "Sew Be It" quilt theme.  This has been a very popular theme with our members, as we've had a lot of signups and completed squares even before the target date.  One of our members has stitched five squares and another has stitched four squares.  


It looks like we will have enough for at least two quilts, or if we're lucky, three.

Our group is growing every month, with new members joining.  If you have some time to stitch for charity, won't you join us in helping to create some lovely gifts for seniors and children?

It's a Dog's Life

  1. Aren't these the cutest doggies? We are currently working on quilts featuring man's best friend. This has been a fun theme to stitch and it looks like the members enjoyed stitching these cuties, as there were lots of sign ups.  There are so many dog charts available to purchase and a lot of them are free to download.

We've got QUILTS!


Quilts, tote bags, walker bags, wheelchair bags and greeting cards were recently delivered to a care facility for seniors.  

There were lots of smiles when these items were delivered recently.  The seniors love to receive these special gifts of love and the members of our group love to stitch, sew, and quilt them. 

We now have several members creating these gifts, so more gifts are being made and given to the seniors.  But, there is always room for more!

We always enjoy having new members join our group and we enjoy seeing all the gifts being created from the cross stitched squares.

"In a Garden" Quilt Theme

Our group has been working on some really nice themes these last few months.  One theme that will be well received by a lady at one of our care facilities is  "In a Garden".  

This will be a gorgeous quilt when finished.   The members have had fun stitching these various pieces from their stash of designs.

Summer is usually a busy time of year with children and grandchildren out of school, going on vacations, etc.  However, if one or more of our blog readers would enjoy taking a little time to stitch for charity, the reward of giving from the heart is wonderful!

Our group is free to join and there is no pressure to stitch-you can stitch however much you have time for.

Dolly Mamas


 Our group had lots of fun stitching these unique Dolly Mama charts for a quilt recently.  One of our members, Bonnie C., had purchased these charts for her own use.  After she stitched them, she decided to share the charts and remaining floss with some of our members to make a memorable quilt for a senior lady in a senior care facility.

A lot of these sayings are so true about seniors, as well as non-seniors. There are lot of us who can relate to them.  

At the present time we have a "dogs" theme open.  Members are stitching charts from their stash or from some of the freebie websites.  We also have a "Geometric" theme currently open, where members are stitching different charts from the DMC-USA website of Geometric squares. 

We are planning a couple of new themes beginning next week. 

Cross stitchers:  come join us in our stitching fun and help to brighten the day of a senior or child.  You can join by clicking on the Yahoo tab at the top of our blog.  If you decide our group does not fit your stitching needs, you can unsubscribe at any time and re-join later at any time.
