Promoting literacy and well-being for all
Books and a Blanket
And we are so excited to announce our participation in another great program! Beginning in January 2017 on the second Tuesday of the month and each month thereafter we will be working with Books and a Blanket to host a sewing day at St. Thomas Episcopal, 906 George Bush Drive, from 10AM-2PM.
Our own special "Charles" will be your host. Come and bring your sewing machine and thread. Charles will provide the fabric, batting, and a pattern to help you create a special quilt for this wonderful local cause. Please call Charles at 979-422- 2101 to let him know you will attending.
Dedicated to help those in need & to share with the community their love of quilts.
Brazos Bluebonnet Quilt Guid
The Brazos Bluebonnet Quilt Guild is a tax exempt, non-profit, educational organization. It was first organized in late 1985 by a small group of women interested in quilts and quilting. The number of members has gradually increased to our current membership of over 100 active and honorary members.
The mission of the guild is to educate members and the public about quilts and quilting, and to support deserving charities.
Funds raised by the Guild are used to bring in nationally and locally recognized speakers to our monthly meetings and workshops. The programs are educational and interesting, providing quilting information on history, techniques, materials, and other aspects of this popular art form. Workshops are offered to further our knowledge.
Lone Star Quiltworks is a regular contributor to guild service projects.
Our vision is a hunger-free Brazos Valley.
Brazos Valley Food Bank
As a matter of fundamental principle, the Brazos Valley Food Bank strives to adhere to the highest ethical standards. As a matter of pragmatic self-interest, we should do so because public trust in our performance and stewardship is the bedrock of our legitimacy. Donors and volunteers support charitable organizations because they trust them to carry out their missions, to be good stewards of their resources, and to uphold rigorous standards of conduct. The Brazos Valley Food Bank must earn this trust every day and in every possible way. Our board members, executive leaders, staff, and volunteers must demonstrate their ongoing commitment to the core values of integrity, honesty, fairness, openness, respect, and responsibility. Adherence to the law is the minimum standard of expected behavior. The Brazos Valley Food Bank must do more, however, than simply obey the law. We must embrace the spirit of the law, often going beyond legal requirements and making sure that what we do is matched by what the public understands about what we do. Transparency, openness and responsiveness to public concerns must be integral to our behavior.
In 2020, Lone Star Quiltworks ran a Gift One Back gift certificate promo and donated a portion of the proceeds to our local Food Bank.
