About Us

Silicon Valley Quilts for Kids (SVQFK) is a Northern California chapter of the national 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization Quilts for Kids, Inc.  We are quilters who make and donate colorful quilts to bring comfort to children in need. 

What began with eight quilters in 2011 now consists of about 70 volunteers.  Everyone sews at home and we hold semimonthly workshops where volunteers sew on individual projects, sort fabric donations and prepare quilts for deliveries.   Some volunteers prefer to assemble patchwork, some like to quilt our tops on their large quilting machines and others enjoy finishing and binding.  We are fortunate to have several volunteers who own quilting machines -- they have quilted hundreds of our quilts on their specialized equipment. 

Our volunteers select the recipients of receive our quilts.  Click here to view the list of those agencies.
