In the past, the guild has made and donated bibs, baby and lap quilts, and pillowcases to Stephens County Youth Services and Women's Haven. Completed quilts have been donated to the Duncan Senior Citizens Center as a raffle quilt and to the family selected for the local Habitat for Humanity project.

The guild voted to provide crocheted/knitted hats, heart pillows, totes, and lap quilts to the Cancer Treatment Center of Southwest Oklahoma and to the Stephens County Youth Shelter, both located in Duncan, OK, as the community service projects for the year 2013-2014.

Use this pattern for the heart pillow. The pattern calls for a 13" length of elastic; however, after Caroline McCauley and Judy Hawkins made a few of the pillows, it was decided that the elastic length should be 14" in length. Also, it is easier to make the heart pillow by cutting a square big enough for the heart, trace around the heart pattern on the wrong side of the pillow, place and pin the elastic inside the right sides of the traced pillow, then sew on the traced line leaving a 3" opening on the side of the pillow. Trim out around the heart 1/4", reverse the pillow to the right side, stuff moderately with polyfil, blind stitch the opening closed.

As items are completed, they can be given to Martha Walker who will deliver them to the Cancer Treatment Center or to the Youth Shelter since the items are needed at this time.

In addition to guild members, the Happy Hatters from the Duncan Senior Citizens Center crocheted/knitted hats in many lovely colors and styles. The guild wishes to acknowledge their donation of time and yard to help in this community service effort. THANKS, Happy Hatters!
