The Latimer Ladies are back.
Located in beautiful Tillamook, Oregon, the Latimer Quilt & Textile Center offers bi-monthly exhibits featuring vintage textiles or contemporary fiber and textile art by local and nationally recognized artists. We have a research library for on-site use, a gift shop full of handcrafted items, books, yarn and vintage fabrics.
Quilts Beyond Borders is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that reaches out to under-served children, mainly orphans, across the world to provide a handmade quilt and spread love and hope.
Quilts Beyond Borders operates solely for charitable purposes. We will provide quilts to poor or underprivileged people throughout the world. The purpose of the quilts is to provide warmth and comfort. Priority for recipients will be children, especially those living without family homes.
At the Quiltfest show, we will be handing out Quilt KITS for you to finish and return to us. We also have finished quilt TOPS for Longarmers to quilt for us.
Our Mission is to empower impoverished women and girls in Kenya, specifically women who have experienced obstetric fistula and girls who have experienced gender-based violence. We support women to gain the necessary skills and self-confidence to become economically independent and support girls to stay in school and continue their education..
