The Quarantine Quilt Project offering FREE craft kits to vulnerable and/or isolated people in Devon

Free craft kits are now available to help support the more vulnerable and isolated to encourage their participation in The Quarantine Quilt Project.

The Quarantine Quilt Project together with Significant Seams has funding to post a substantial craft supply kit to vulnerable and/or isolated people in Devon, to create connection and enable participation in The Quarantine Quilt project – a national network of community quilts.

Community groups are now invited to nominate people that you support to receive a free kit. The Quarantine Quilt Project wants to help support the more vulnerable and isolated, and encourage their participation.

Devon Community Foundation have provided funding for 100 FREE kits, posted directly to people who might appreciate this sort of activity and the opportunities for connection with other people it will offer. Each kit will contain:

  • An embroidery hoop
  • Several patches of fabric
  • Embroidery threads
  • A new set of John James Crafters Collection needles
  • A thimble
  • A water soluble fabric marking pen
  • Embroidery scissors
  • Some pins
  • Some scrap fabric
  • An information pack – See here for the digital copy

How to apply

The Quarantine Quilt Project really welcomes your provision of the name and snail mail address of  individuals who would be interested to get involved. They will post them a participation kit, while supplies last.

Email your nomination to: projectteam[at]thequarantinequiltproject.org.
