Charity Sew Days

PMQG members continually share their skills and love of quilting through charity sewing.

Charity Sew days are hosted by PMQG member Cath Hall at Modern Domestic (422 NE Alberta Street) from 10am until 4pm.  

Just bring yourself! Everything needed for Charity Sew Days is generously supplied by Modern Domestic (mats, rotary cutters, irons, rulers, Bernina sewing machines, a Bernina long arm machine and even a Bernina table top quilting machine).  Whether you prefer cutting, ironing, piecing or quilting, there’s a job for everyone! You can stay all day or drop by for an hour or two.  Many hands means many charity quilts!

Modern Domestic even offers PMQG participants a 20% discount on all purchases made at Charity Sew Days!

Upcoming Events

For a complete list of dates, see the CALENDAR OF EVENTS.  


2018 1st Trimester:  Camp Erin, a camp for grieving children. When the campers arrive, they are greeted with a teddy bear and a quilt on their bunks. Quilts for camp Erin should be twin sized (minimum 39"x 76") and be child appropriate in theme and fabric. Campers are aged 6-17 and the camp often has a special need for quilts that may appeal to boys, especially teen boys.  Join a PMQG Charity Day, or bring finished quilts (quilted or not) to any meeting or PMQG event to help with this charity.

More information about quilts for Camp Erin can be found here.

Ongoing: Pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) at Doernbecher Children's Hospital

The PICU unit would like to receive quilts from 36" x 36" to twin sized. Boy-friendly quilts are always in high demand.

From their website: "We provide care to critically ill or injured pediatric patients from birth to young adulthood. The PICU team cares for children across a vast spectrum of health issues including trauma, surgery, respiratory, cardiac, hematology/oncology and neurologic disorders."
