MUUC Quilters

Our primary goal is everyone’s safety and wellness. To reduce the spread of the Coronavirus, the MUUC Quilters are currently meeting in person with safety precautions in place such as wearing masks and using an air filter.

The MUUC Quilters create hand-made quilts for many good causes. They meet on Fridays from 9:00 am until 11:00 am. Newcomers are ALWAYS welcome to join in, and NO EXPERIENCE NEEDED! (enter via side door, on the down-ramp going to basement level. If not open, please go to side door at the top of the main ramp by the small parking lot, and ring the doorbell)

In addition to creating a lovely quilt to be raffled during our Annual Harvest Fair, the Quilters also make many other items for the fair and for our Annual Auction. There are also several on-going outreach activities, with the quilts shown below, including quilts for babies in the Melrose Wakefield Hospital Neonatal Unit and Tufts Pediatric Emergency Room.

2018 Harvest Fair Quilt (won by yours truly, the MUUC “web-weenie”!)

The MUUC Quilters have donated dozens of baby quilts to a Somerville program for women in recovery.

They also prepared children’s quilts for the Tufts Medical Center Pediatric Emergency Department.

In the past, the quilters also have made many lap-quilts for hospitalized veterans. Quilts were donated to the Soldiers Home in Chelsea and the Veterans Medical Center in West Roxbury.
