"DOSE OF GOOD" from WFDD on May 24, 2021
"Quilters love to quilt. We make bed quilts, throws, baby quilts, table runners, wall hangings, placemats and more. We make them for family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors. When we’ve made something for everyone we know we make things for people we don’t know. The members of the Piedmont Quilters’ Guild in Greensboro NC have been making and donating quilts since 1980! We recently donated 22 quilts to Freedom House, a substance abuse recovery center for mothers and their children. They were so happy to receive this donation. The quilts will keep the mothers and children warm through the winter. We have already started on more quilts and look forward to donating again soon!"
