American Family Housing is deeply appreciative of the patriotic members of the Surfside Quilters Guild in south Orange County, who gathered to craft six of the fifteen beautiful quilts that now lovingly decorate the beds of our Potter’s Lane residents. Each hand-crafted, red, white and blue quilt had its own patriotic design and came with a matching pillow case. Pictured above (left to right) with one of their beautiful creations are Vivian Hawker, Sheri Hill, Suzette Blake, Jan Kerr, Karen Wendel, Mary Freedman and Cathi Opila. They also donated an additional nine pillowcases and king-sized pillows so every room would have one.
The Surfside Quilters Guild was created in 2009 as a non-profit organization dedicated exclusively to educational, charitable and social causes. The club provides a creative atmosphere to share knowledge of methods and techniques, and to encourage each member’s growth and talent in the field of quilt-making and related subjects. The guild participates in philanthropic endeavors such as Wounded Warriors, Grandma’s House of Hope, San Clemente Military Family Outreach, Family Assistance Ministries, Obria, Meals on Wheels, Marine baby showers and their newest project, Potter’s Lane. They meet on the second Tuesday of the month at the San Clemente Presbyterian Church at 10:00 a.m. Guests and new members are always welcome.
