Project Description

Quilting Blitz

NISA will be holding a Quilting Blitz in our Warm Hearts Warm Bodies program from the 10th to the 14th of November. We need your help to make quilts for our annual donation to Foyer Notre Dame, a shelter for female youth. Members are welcome to come any time from 8:30am-4pm to cut squares and assemble the quilts and help warm some bodies in our community.


Warm Hearts/Warm Bodies is a NISA program that solicits and receives donations of materials, fabric and textiles for the creation of quilts, blankets and comforters for people within our community who are in need. Warm Hearts/Warm Bodies reduces waste by re-using materials, provides a valued service to the less fortunate, and helps program participants acquire useful skills.

Year-round, NISA accepts material such as cloth and wool to make quilts. If you have donations of quilts, blankets or comforters (new or gently used), please contact Kaarina Ranta at 705-222-6472 to arrange a drop-off. They will be distributed to Foyer Notre Dame in the winter to people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.
