The Capital City Quilters (CCQ) Guild participates in a number of community service projects throughout the year as well as providing a biennial Capital City Quilt Show free for the community.
CCQ has been making and donating comfort quilts throughout the community for years. Some of the organizations that have received these quilts include:
Juneau Police Department
Juneau Fire Department
Victims of natural disasters
Juneau Housing First
Shrine of St. Therese
Many fundraisers in the community
Currently we are working for the Red Cross, Cancer Connection, Family Promise, and Social Services for when a child is adopted. We also gave one to a little boy who ended up going for cancer treatments.
This is a guild project and needs many guild members to join in the fun. The guild budgets for batting each year and the quilt tops are made by guild members, quilted by guild members and then have the binding sew on by members.

Pillowcases and Receiving Blankets for Aware
Capital City Quilters adopted Juneau’s AWARE shelter as their standing charity project. AWARE provides comprehensive intervention and prevention, outreach and education regarding domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse. AWARE, Inc, provides these services to Juneau and smaller communities in Southeast Alaska.
Guild members make pillowcases and receiving blankets to donate to the shelter. The blankets and pillowcases are delivered to AWARE monthly. Women and children receive a pillowcase (or receiving blanket) when they arrive, using it during their stay and then taking it with them when they leave.
Members can pick up free kits at meetings, or can use their own fabrics, to sew pillowcases and receiving blankets.Holiday themed pillow cases and receiving blankets made from member's own fabrics go into a drawing to receive a prize.

Unfinished Objects (UFO)
The Let’s Get Quilting UFO Project is sponsored by the Capital City Quilters Guild. Basically, it’s a contract to help you commit to finishing some of those “Un-Finished Objects” that you may have tucked away in a closet, drawer or from your long lost Aunt Nellie who is long since gone and has left in your devoted care. Sure…we all have something tucked away that is just waiting for completion…so here’s your opportunity. The only one you’re competing against is yourself so you determine the amount you are willing to pay to complete this project. Remember though, if you don’t complete it by September, then you owe the Guild the amount that you promised to pay. If you do complete it, with a batting, binding and label then you’re a WINNER! Congratulations! Not only did you complete your project, then you also are awarded an amazing prize by the following September Meeting. (The UFO program starts in January and forms can be found in the Members Only Section).
