Partners and Friends

Make Welcome is the grateful recipient of generous in-kind gifts of fabric, supplies, patterns, and more from our many partners and friends.

We'd like to thank ...

The Charlotte Modern Quilt Guild members for generous donations of fabric.

Coats and Clark (Charlotte, NC) for generous donations of thread, zippers, and fabric.

Colette Patterns for one of our favorite beginner projects, the Moneta pattern and other Seamwork and Colette patterns.

Oliver & S for many children's patterns that we have loved sewing, especially the After School Shirt and Pants.

True Bias Patterns for several patterns we have tested and look forward to sewing with students this year, including the Sutton Blouse, the Southport Dress, and more.

Closet Case Patterns For their very generous donation of a variety of wonderful paper patterns. Our students are going to learn so much sewing the Kalle Shirtdress this fall!

Holley and Sage owner and Make Welcome volunteer, Jennifer Shields, for donations of beautiful fabric.

Twenty-two West owner and Make Welcome volunteer, Mary Hamby. Sales of the Safety Pin House, designed and made by Mary, go to purchase supplies for Make Welcome. The Safety Pin House is a reminder to pray, donate, call, advocate, speak out or create a safe place where everyone can have a home, regardless of nationality. If you'd like to purchase, visit Twenty-two West.

Dritz for supplying all new cutting mats, seam rippers, and more for our sewing classes.
