About Moma's House:
MOMA's house is based on the philosophy of My Own Movement toward Achievement (MOMA). We work with women who are committed to transforming their lives while in recovery from domestic violence and human sex trafficking. We are a 501(c)3 Organization and have provided services to 63 women since opening our doors in 2009.
2018 Service (this includes contributions from several of Jeri's friends):
Donna G. is managing Calico's Service Activities this year. If you have a favorite charity on your list this year, please take on the responsibility of organizing a sew day where Calico members can join in supporting your selected organization. Donna's role is to help you get club time and resources in order to make the activity a success. Please use the form below right to let her know what you plan to take on and she will get in touch with you. Let's make 2019 another successful year for our Service projects!

2019 Service Activity
Karen L. donates a quilt she finished for Moma's House. She also handed out (2/11) block patterns for members to take home and finish for the next quilt.
Kits of 6" cut squares for charity quilt tops are available at each meeting. Members may take home kits or work on them during Open Sew. Members may also drop off their completed projects on this table.
