Our Guild creates twin size quilts for this long-term residential home for teens with emotional, behavioral, or learning problems, and their families. With a bed capacity of 75, residents get to use and keep their quilt when they transition out of the home. Our Guild is committed to providing all residents with a beautiful quilt they will cherish for years to come.
