Quilting for Comfort: Loose Threads Guild Continues to Warm Hearts

January 5, 2024

The Laurens County Sheriff’s Office is starting the new year full of gratitude for the dedicated members of the Loose Threads Quilt Guild for their ongoing generosity. For over four years, the guild has been steadfast in their commitment to supporting the community, and their recent contribution of comfort quilts is truly commendable.

Last year alone, the Loose Threads Quilt Guild donated an impressive 42 quilts to the Sheriff’s Office. These “comfort quilts” are distributed by deputies on calls involving children and vulnerable adults. The thoughtful contributions have undoubtedly brought comfort and solace during challenging moments for those in need.

As the new year begins, the Loose Threads Quilt Guild continues to exemplify the spirit of community partnership by delivering an additional 38 quilts.

Special recognition was given to Carolyn Garrett of Joanna for her skillful craftsmanship in creating some of the quilt tops. Furthermore, the Sheriff’s Office acknowledged Palmetto Quilts of Greenwood for their generous donation of fabric to make the quilts.

A resounding thanks is owed to all members of the Loose Threads Quilt Guild for their dedication and hard work in assembling these quilts. Their quilts not only provided physical warmth but also symbolize the warmth of community bonds.

“Their collective efforts demonstrates the positive impact that can be achieved when a community comes together for a common cause,” says Courtney Snow, LCSO Public Information Officer. “The Laurens County Sheriff’s Office greatly appreciates the Loose Threads Quilt Guild for their continuous support.”
