Fabric Friends

Our volunteer quilting group meets monthly to create and donate comfort quilts to WHCN Foundation at Danbury Hospital.
As of July 2017, the Fabric Friends have created and donated 274 lap-sized comfort quilts. 

  • Join us on the first Monday of the month from 5:00 to 7:30 p.m. (unless it is a holiday)
  • We enjoy these social gatherings and our time spent learning about quilting from one another. We have our "sharing" time at 6:00 where we show what we have finished, share ideas, and help each other with projects. 

If you have cotton fabric or batting that you would like to donate, please give us a call at 203-743-5200, or drop in to the museum on a Saturday. Contact us at webmaster@danburymusem.org
