Matching Fundraiser !

Exciting News! Until December 10th, an anonymous donor has agreed to match all funds raised for our building up to $5,000! This is incredible. We owe approximately $15,000 on our building we just purchased in September. This would take a big chunk out of that. Our goal is to finish 2009 debt free. Would you please consider helping us reach that goal? Make your tax-deductible gift to Kidz Quiltz and send to the address listed. Call us if you have any questions, (303) 857-8600.
Our new building!

What's New?

Kidz Quiltz has their own building! It's official, the papers were signed on September 22. We've been fundraising to pay for our building and had raised enough funds to proceed with the purchase of it. We continue to fundraise to end the year debt-free. $15,000 more to go. We so appreciate our supporters who are making this happen - even in a recession. Thank you!

We plan to have a work day for our building on Saturday, October 24 from 9am - 3pm. If you're available to help, we'd love to see you there.

We've also sent 50 quilts to Haiti! These quilts left this past Friday with a medical missions team. We're excited to hear about their trip and the people they were able to show God's love to during their time in Haiti.

Photos will be coming soon of our building. Thanks again for your support.

Trapper Days

Well, it's that time of year again for Trapper Days in Ft. Lupton, CO. This is always a fundraiser opportunity for Kidz Quiltz. This year it rained, so the crowds were down some, but we still raised over $200 for our building fund. All in all a good day of fundraising, raising awareness about Kidz Quiltz and spending time with friends.

Well, it's been awhile since Kidz Quiltz has updated their blog. We've been busy!

In April we decided to move from our building. With the economy as it is, it just wasn't making sense to stay where we were. Now, we're working out of our President Wilma Hamilton's basement and more of our funds are able to go straight to supplies needed to make these quilts for needy children.

While we hope this is a temporary place for Kidz Quiltz, we are still hard at work. Here are some photos from June's quilting day.

Open House

Kidz Quiltz had a successful Open House that we hope will be the first of many.

To date, Kidz Quiltz has distributed 1,827 quilts to children in need.

We had a silent auction to help raise much needed funds.
