Winglion is the home of the Community Quilt Project where we stitch together loving thoughts of friends for those facing illness or other hardship, and of Pootie Pads, small quilts filled with organic herbs to pamper your pet with soothing scents. We celebrate the connection of people to each other and with the four-legged creatures with whom we share our homes. At Winglion, there is love and warmth in every quilt we make.
