Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) shares God's love and compassion for all in the name of Christ by responding to basic human needs and working for peace and justice.
MCC has workers or financial commitments in more than 60 countries around the world, including the U.S. and Canada.
The Mennonite Quilt Center located in Reedley, California, is a fabric store and quilt gallery, but more importantly, it is a community of volunteers working together for world relief. The MQC is owned and operated by West Coast Mennonite Central Committee (MCC). Each purchase at the MQC benefit MCC’s ministry of relief, development and peace in the name of Christ.
Watch this short video about MQC to learn more about what makes us unique. The MQC offers bolts of fabric, quilting and sewing notions, as well as handmade quilts and comforters.
Not only do we want to be the place you buy your quilts and supplies, we want to be the place you volunteer to be part of a ministry dedicated to relief, development and peace in the name of Christ.
Here are some of the activities we invite you to join:
Everyday (except Sundays and holidays), volunteers and clerks staff our retail quilt store, assisting customers in selecting fabrics and notions, registering people for classes, and managing our inventory of high quality fabrics. Additionally, specially trained volunteers operate MQC's longarm machine, finishing quilts on behalf of the quilting community. Visitors enjoy watching the long-arm operator at work on the beautiful quilts.
Each Monday morning quilters gather at the MQC to hand quilt, tie comforters, have coffee, share recipes, and have fun. Their quilts are displayed in the MQC's quilt museum in February and auctioned at the annual West Coast Mennonite Sale and Auction for World Relief held at Fresno Pacific University each April. Unfortunately, no activities are taking place right now due to the constraints of the Covid-19 pandemic. Once the precautions for Covid-19 are lifted, these activities will resume.
