Quilters for Others aka Q4O

Quilters for Others is a philanthropy arm of the San Fernando Valley Quilt Association. We meet at St. James Presbyterian Church at 19414 Ventura Blvd near Shirley Ave. The phone number there is (818)345 2057.

We meet the last Wednesday of the month from about 9:30 to 3:00. Anyone is welcome to help tie quilts for a variety of good causes. You can also bring your sewing machine, but we have materials to tie quilts.

There is fast food available nearby, or one can bring lunch.
