Gold Hill Quilters

November 11th, 2012

The Gold Hill Quilters is a name given to a group of community members who want to make quilts and help out our neighbors and friends who lost their homes during the FourMile fire of 2010.  Challenged by a member of the community who lost everything during the fire, this group came together to create a quilt for that neighbor when she mentioned that her dream was to have a handmade quilt for her bedroom.  Realizing that they could bring her dream to fruition, they set out to not only make a quilt for her but for everyone who lost their home during the fire and intended to come back to Gold Hill following the fire.  To date, the group has made six quilts and an additional quilt has been donated by a quilting group in Boulder.  They remain devoted to creating quilts with the hope that having something handmade by the community will help set the path toward a brighter future.  This group is open to any and all who wish to help out.  They’ve had many participants in the last year, including those that wish to financially support their efforts.  Contact Debra Yeager at 303 881 7665 for more information.
