Community Outreach

For over 35 years, the members of Carquinez Strait Stitchers have been reaching out to the community to lighten the burden of those in need by providing comfort quilts and other items.  We are proud to have provided hundreds of quilts and other items to Solano County men, women and children.  Community Outreach is an integral part of our guild and we are happy that together we can make an important difference in our community.

Community Outreach workshops are held on the 2nd Friday of every month at Heritage Presbyterian Church. As we ease back into in-person meetings, in order to keep the number of people in the room small, we are splitting our day into two shifts 10am-12:30pm and 12:30pm-3pm. All members who are vaccinated are welcome. Please contact Community Outreach Chairperson Janice Johnson to sign up for a shift. Please wear a mask.
