Quilting group donates to sheriff’s office

Written by 

Members of the Blue Ridge Mountain Quilt Guild in Canton stopped by the Haywood County Sheriff’s Office recently to drop off some unique gifts to help kids caught in tough situations.

Traci Hoglen and Lisa Mundy Bell with the nonprofit group presented the sheriff’s office with 26 machine-quilted, hand bound quilts that deputies will carry in their cars. In the event they are called to a scene where children might need comfort, the quilt can make them feel a little more at ease.

“These quilts will be wrapped around a child — maybe a child who was in a car accident or whose house has burned. The idea these will help children and maybe give them comfort is what really motivated us,” said Hoglen.
