Snuggled in Hope Quilts: What do we do?
We create quilts and pillowcases !
Since 2013, Snuggled has provided a quilt for each camper who attends
Flying Horse Farms.
In 2018 we added a pillowcase for each summer camper. We were also able to expand our giving by donating a quilt for each family who comes to weekend Family Camps, and a pillowcase for each child that attended Family Camps.
Volunteers help in all steps of the creation of the quilts and pillowcases from start to finish; donating fabrics, preparing fabrics by pressing, sorting and cutting; making kits, making pillowcases, quilt tops, backs, and bindings; tying or machine quilting the quilts, and adding the bindings.
Before being donated all quilts and pillowcase are laundered. Some of the volunteers do that for us.
Prior to campers' arrival days a crew of volunteers "dress" the beds with the quilts, and pillowcases.
You DO NOT have to know how to sew, or quilt, because, as you can see, there are numerous other opportunities and ways to help-in person or at home.
During 2019, we donated a total of
607 quilts and 766 pillowcases for campers and families . We could not do what we do without our volunteers and the generosity of donors.
Sadly, because of COVID-19, all camps for 2020 were suspended. However, we were still able to donate 425 pillowcases to be included in the "Camp -in-a-Box" that were put together and delivered to campers. We donated several dozen fabric face masks to be used at camp as needed.
17 quilts & 34 pillowcases were donated for raffles at holiday "Light up Camp" events at Flying Horse Farms.
2021 Camp-Possible !!
131 pillowcases have already been delivered to be included in this year's
"Camp-in-a-Box". Flying Horse Farms celebrated their 10th anniversary by welcoming families for 12 weekend camps throughout the late spring, summer and fall. Over 400 quilts and pillowcases were provided to campers and families who came. And another 17 quilts were donated for raffles during "Light Up Camp" nights, all proceeds benefitted camp.
