Community Service

Since launching the Ocean Waves website in the spring of 2010, our community service outreach has expanded greatly. Members, becoming aware of the increasing needs within the community, have started new partnerships, new projects or expanded their efforts on existing projects.

Needs are frequently announced at guild meetings. If you or your group has a project, that Ocean Waves Quilt Guild could assist your with, please contact Jackie Bernardi or Jan Holly, coordinators of Community Service for the guild.

One guild meeting a year is scheduled as "Sew-In" working on projects for a few of the projects we support. Members gather to work in small groups producing items for that project. In 2013 Charles Paparella of TV Station WBOC visited the "Sew-In" and produced a segment for his Travels with Charlie feature. Click below to view the segment.
Travels With Charlie - February, 2013

NOTE * Patterns for projects shown can be found on the resources page.
