It’s that time of year again!
Registration is now open for our 3rd Annual WUIS Quilt-a-Thon.

Calling All Quilters and Volunteers!
Join us for a fun-filled day of quilting to help children in need!

It’s baaack! The 3rd Annual Quiltathon is scheduled to take place on Saturday, February 18, 2012 at Fenway Park!

In honor of Fenway’s 100th Anniversary, the goal has been set to make 100 quilt tops before the day’s end!

Our last quiltathon produced over 50 quilt tops that were donated to the families of our US militarymen and women. We also raised over $2,500 for Wrapped Up in Sports, which has gone towards quilt materials and supplies, shipping of quilts and expanding our cause throughout New England!

Pre-made quilt kits w/ instructions, donated fabrics and other supplies will be provided, but we entice quilters to bring their own sewing machines and supplies as well.

Completed quilts will be donated to

  • Room to Grow
  • Hospitality Homes
  • Children’s Hospital Boston
  • Horizons for Homeless Children.

Complimentary food and refreshments will be provided
Raffles & Gifts will be awarded
AND expect a visit from Red Sox favorite Wally who is looking forward to coming back to sew!
A full day is not required. Volunteers are encouraged to attend throughout the day. The longer you stay, the more quilts will be made for children in need.

Come participate for a worthy cause – making children smile!

EVENT: 2011 Quilt-a-Thon Wrap Up

2 May

On March 13, 2011 Wrapped Up in Sports held it’s 2nd Annual Quilt-a-Thon!
We were honored and proud to be able to spend the day quilting at Fenway Park and thrilled to see so many familiar and new faces who came out to quilt Red Sox Themed Quilts for the MGH Homebase Program.

The day started with a welcome speech from WUIS founder Kate McCullough.

We also had a fun visit from Wally, the Red Sox Mascot.
He sewed, cut material and posed for pictures!

Fenway also surprised us by bringing down the two World Series trophies and allowed all of the volunteers to pose for pictures.

Before the day was through we had a special visit from the folks over at MGH Homebase Program and the lovely Jacque Francona.

At the end of the day we were able to finish a staggering 60 quilt tops!


Thank you so much to all of our wonderful volunteers, sponsors, and especially Fenway Enterprises for allowing us to quilt in such an inspiring location.
