2023 SafeHouse Center Quilt Sale

October is National Domestic Violence Awareness and Prevention Month.

Each fall, the Greater Ann Arbor Quilt Guild holds an online quilt sale which benefits SafeHouse Center of Washtenaw County. For more than 30 years, our guild has been a sponsor for this valued community resource.

Each of these beautiful quilts was made by our guild members and the proceeds go directly to SafeHouse Center. 

Note: When you purchase a quilt, you will be redirected to SafeHouse Center’s ecommerce store.

The sale is open to the public. Need a gift for an upcoming birthday, holiday, or other special event? These special quilts are beautiful, well-made, and at a great price!
