Join us as we work to make the Thompson Lodge rooms at Procter Center a little cozier. Our goal is to receive or make a quilt for each bed in the lodge. There are lots of ways for you to get involved:

  • Donate a completed quilt in memory or in honor of someone
  • Donate fabric which will be used by summer camp or volunteers to make quilts 
  • Donate money to have those pieced quilts quilted by a long-arm quilter 
  • Donate your time to come and help youth and families learn how to sew quilts this summer 

If you are interested in getting involved with this project, please reach out to Amy Boyd.

Procter has already received some quilts and they are on the beds. We also had an amazing donation of fabric from the daughters of Mary Graham McKell, an avid quilter and member of St. Paul’s, Chillicothe. After Mary’s death, Martha McKell Price and Susan McKell weren’t sure what to do with all her fabric. The Rev. Paul Daggett, Priest in Charge of St. Paul’s, knew of our quilting program and mentioned it to the girls. They were thrilled to have a place to donate their mother’s treasured fabric. We are so excited to receive this amazing donation, because the campers and families will be able to pick the perfect fabric to make quilts this summer.
