As a tribute to Jackie Crumley and her love for the community, the guild established the "Jackie Crumley Service Award" to be given annually to a member selected by the executive board.  The recipient is chosen based on their tremendous dedication, time and efforts given to support guild community service work.

Each year the LSQG selects one or more community service projects where we as members donate time and supplies to work on items for various organizations, medical facilities, nursing homes, and other groups.  These are submitted by members and voted on by the guild.   


If a template and/or information on a project the guild has done is available it will do our best to display a button where you may click for access to the pattern or instructions.
