Clarksville Quilters donate Handmade Quilts to Clarksville Police Department

Clarksville Police Department

Clarksville Police Department - CPDClarksville, TN – Clarksville area quilters generously donated 133 handmade trunk quilts to the Clarksville Police Department.

The trunk quilts are meant to provide comfort to children or something to hold onto when they are going through a difficult time or feel like their world is crumbling in all around them.

One of the quilters said, “Many hands gave many hours to help make officer’s jobs a little easier on the really bad days and hopefully give a child a positive memory from a negative experience”.

The quilts were made through a collective effort by Clarksville quilters in groups, at home, and, in quilt gilds.

Absolutely Fun Sewing acted as a coordinating agency and central hub for the quilts to be dropped off and provided a space for the quilters to work. Each quilt took anywhere from four to five hours to create, start to finish.

The third Friday of each month Absolutely Fun Sewing works on Charity Projects if anyone wants to help and donated fabrics (100% cotton) are accepted.
