Join Us!

We are a volunteer organization that creates quilts, blankets, hats and booties given to all babies born at Mason General Hospital in Shelton, Washington. We quilt, crochet and knit. 
 
We meet twice a month for a Sew Bee from 10:00 am-3:00 pm. Meetings take place on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month. The second Tuesday also includes our Business Meeting from 1:00-3:00 pm.
 
For more information or about joining our group, please check out Frequently Asked Questions or email us.
 
We get together in a large meeting room in the PUD 3 building located at 2621 East John's Prairie Road in Shelton. Enter the parking lot using the entrance closest to Shelton. The meeting room is the one located closest to the front of the building.
 
On the second Tuesday of the month we have a Business Meeting along with the Sew Beet from 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm.
 
The Sew Bee is where we work on projects. Bring your supplies and pack a lunch. Coffee is made for this meeting, and people take turns bringing in snacks. You don't have to stay for the entire Sew Bee time - people come and go as needed.

We have members all over Mason County and many of us carpool. Email us if you are interested in carpooling.

Dues for the group are $5.00. We are non-profit, and run on donations of material, batting and yarn.

Our History

Christmastown Quilters was started about 20 years ago. There were originally 10 to 11 members, but there are now over 30.

The first meeting place was St. David's Church in Shelton, WA, and the group made altar quilts. Meetings also took place at people's homes, the Shelton library, the new town hall, and even the hospital. In 2011, PUD 3 opened a new operations center on Johns Prairie Road in Shelton and offered meeting rooms to the public, so this is now the home for the Christmastown Quilters.

When the group as meeting at the Mason General Hospital, it was brought to their attention by a doctor in the Obstetrics Department, that quilts and blankets were needed for some of the newborns. It was suggested that, in exchange for the meeting room, the group dedicate itself to making those items for all of the babies born at Mason General (more than 300 annually).

The number of quilts and blankets donated annually has risen from around 12 to over 300.
