Recognizing Volunteers

Helen Smith Stone started Northern Lights Machine Quilters Guild 20 years ago. It has grown to 70 members. Candy Adams is also a member. Each year the guild takes on at least one special project. Candy approached Helen to ask if the guild would be interested in providing quilts for the new Ronald McDonald House.

Helen thought it would be a wonderful opportunity and the guild is now making quilts all year long to give back and bring comfort  to the children at the RM House. Although the quilters had a good collection of fabrics they did need batting, which is the middle layer of a quilt. Helen contacted two national batting companies requesting a donation. The guild was  pleased to receive three HUGE rolls of donated batting. They are each 25 yards long and 104″ wide.


The quilters are working from home or a studio to create  the quilts for the age group zero to three years old. If any club members are interested in helping with this project please contact:
Helen at hsmithstone@gmail.com 218-341-0489 or

Candy at candyjadams@gmail.com 218-390-3012.
They will provide patterns, fabric and batting if needed.  A specification sheet will be sent to you as required by the Manager  of RM House. This will detail the sizes of quilts that are needed.


Please DO NOT DROP OFF QUILTS at the RM House. All donations must be coordinated with Helen or Candy. A total of 60 quilts have been made thus far and 30  have already been donated. 


Check out the DWC Website and Facebook page for the link to the Fox 21 News interview which took place on February 23rd.

Thank you to the many volunteers
who give generously
 of their time and talent.
