The layette usually contains two sets of onezies, sleepers, a blanket, and socks, plus some baby notions. Snowsuits or other seasonal items might be added, when available.

The Veterans Project

Affiliated with the Quilts of Valor Foundation (, Club members sew quilts for veterans to thank them for their service.
Several members also contribute to Lucky Quilts of Valor, which meets on the fourth Thursday at Lucky Quilt Co in Pecatonica, IL.

In October 2018, we honored Don Beyer
for his Vietnam service.
In April 2018, the Club honored Michael Kammes
with a quilt for his service.

In September 2013, Della Hamberg and Joyce Eneberg have created three quilts to be awarded to veterans, in thanks for their service. Some quilts are donated to the Tomah Veterans Administration Medical Center in Tomah, WI. Esther Dixon and Fran Waller contributed the long arm quilting to these. Every year since, more quilts have been awarded.

Questions or donations may be directed to project leader, Della Hamberg. Contact her at:
