Folsom Quilt and Fiber guild was established in 1985 and has grown since. Many original members remain active. We host a quilt show each spring and have numerous community pursuits. Our members (about 200 this year) make between 200-300 quilts annually. This year our Cuddle Quilts will comfort children at UC Davis Children’s Hospital, provide warmth to victims of domestic violence at Thrive and be carried by Folsom Fire to cuddle children involved in emergencies.
As a retired Registered Nurse, each of these groups is important to me. When I presented information to the Guild about Joshua’s House and the mission to provide hospice care to the homeless community, our group was immediately and deeply responsive. We are committed to providing quilts to Joshua’s House in the hope that some small comfort will be derived at the end of a life that has most likely lacked comfort and respect.
We welcome new members regardless of skill levels. More information about Folsom Quilt and Fiber Guild can be found at folsomquilt.org
