I've been a part of the NURTURE circle of do. Good Stitches since 2013. We used to donate quilts to My Very Own Blanket and then, after a group vote a couple years ago, switched to supporting Covered in Love. I have really loved being a part of this circle and I'd encourage anyone who is interested to apply to join a circle.

do. Good Stitches is a great organization that supports tons of charities. You can sign up to be a stitcher or a quilter. A quilter takes their turn twice a year to choose the block the group makes and finish off the quilt, the rest of the time they just make 2 blocks per month and send them to whoever is the quilter. Stitchers always just make their two blocks a month and never have to take a turn as quilter, so it's a little bit easier of a commitment. If you've ever considered joining a circle, do! It's a ton of fun!
