Spreading love one stitch at a time

DWC members Helen Smith Stone and Candy Adams are featured in this February 23, 2021 story on Fox 21. Northern Lights Machine Quilters Guild members have so far made 60 quilts in their year-long project for children and their families staying at the Ronald McDonald House Northland, which recently opened in Duluth. As Helen shared during the interview: “Quilts are made with love one stitch at a time.”

Helping in the community

Members of the Duluth Womans Club help out in many ways throughout our community. Last June, 26 club members and guests assembled over 6,000 face shields that were sent to Essentia Health. That’s 402 in 15 minutes! Members also raised $1,000 for Safe Haven Shelter for Battered Women.
