LIHU‘E — “It’s warm, new and can go to the families right now,” said Jacklyn Schofield of the Child Welfare Services office in Lihu‘e. “We’ll make sure all the offices have some.”
Linda Kobayashi and Lauren Brennen of the Kaua‘i Quilt Guild paid the CWS office one of its twice-yearly visits, Monday, this time armed with quilted bibs and quilts.
“We also visit the YWCA Women’s Shelter on this same trip,” Kobayashi said following its presentation to the CWS with its supply of quilts and quilted products.
Brennen said if more is needed, the office can always call because they have some products which get developed during the course of the monthly meeting of the guild.
“We do a mid-year visit with more quilts and products,” Brennen said. “It’s part of the guild’s routine.”
Schofield said CWS has three offices: Kapa‘a and Northshore, Central, and Westside, the Central and Westside offices being combined as one office in Lihu‘e.
Kobayashi, president of the Kaua‘i Quilt Guild, said the group is made up of about 50 members with 30 being active, meeting on the second Sunday of each month for quilting activities and discussions.
“We loose, but we’re together,” Kobayashi said, chuckling.
She said the guild will participate in its annual marathon quilting session in February at the Chiefess Kamakahelei Middle School cafeteria.
People interested in becoming a part of the guild can call her at 823-0505.
