PostSubject: The SUGAR Group's Memorial Quilts   Sun May 09, 2010 8:41 pm

Have you lost a beloved sugar glider? Has someone you know had a glider go to the Rainbow Bridge and you want to do something to help comfort them, but just don't know what to do? Unfortunately for us, gliders have a relatively short lifespan. The gliders that have touched our lives will remain in our hearts forever, but there is also a way they can be memorialized for others to see and for us to know that they will not be forgotten.

The SUGAR Group will be selling squares for the 2009 Memorial Quilt from Now - 06/15/10. The squares are $20.00 apiece and will be sewn together into a beautiful quilt which can be sent to and displayed at any glider gathering or special event. You can purchase a square by sending your money via paypal to sugargroup@hotmail.com. Be sure to include the glider's name and date of passing with your payment.

This is a picture of the 2008 Memorial Quilt making an appearance at the 1st Annual SUGAR Group RRRoundup in February 2010. http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif

For those who would like to memorialize gliders who have passed prior to 2009, we are also selling squares at any time, in order to make more quilts for those gliders who were lost in various years. Once we have 16-20 squares, a quilt will be made and another one will be started. It's a sad fact that we outlive these precious creatures and many have lost their cherished furbabies. We would like to give everyone the opportunity to have their treasured memories put in a timeless piece of art to be shared by all.

I just wanted to point out that this quilt is one of the ways that we fund the Necropsy Effort throughout the year. (For any wondering what the money is used for).


I have lost 4 gliders since Christmas day. For me, this is a very real, personal and tangible way to remember them while still helping a great cause.

Val i think this is a great way to remember our lost babies. Just how many Haley squares can 1 quilt hold, I'd happily fill one up myself. Lord I still cry for her she was everything to me.

Did you know that memorial Squares are a great gift for a grieving friend?

The purchase of a memorial square not only honors your lost baby, but also helps provide necessary funds for the Necropsy Effort. 100% of profits from quilt squares are designated for The Necropsy Effort.


The 2008 Quilt will be on display at the SGGA and at the LOL gathering in Sept.
The 2009 Quilt will also be on display at the LOL gathering.

Please don't hesitate to purchase your squares before the deadline.

Memorial Quilt squares can now be purchased all year on our website.

The 2010 quilt is already being assembled and will be completed by March 1, but there is still time for you to get your squares to honor a glider that was special to you.

The quilts are displayed at any gathering that would like to have them displayed throughout the year.

Just wanted to remind everyone that we are still selling squares for the memorial quilts.

Both the 2011 and "random dates" quilts are underway and will be amazingly beautiful.
Quilt squares for the 2011 quilt will only be sold for a few more months.

If you have lost a beloved glider and want to honor them in this way, don't delay. Hop on over to our website and purchase your square(s) today. You can also purchase in honor of a friend's glider. What a touching gift that makes.

We remember them forever in our hearts. These quilts give us a way to honor them forever in a tangible sense.



For those of you attending the TGI gathering this coming weekend, you will see one of our quilts on display there. Stop by and see it. You will be touched by all those little lives that paid it forward.

Bumping this on up. 2011 is coming to an end and I know that many have lost a beloved glider. This is an excellent way to honor those that are lost AND at the same time to contribute to research efforts.

You only have a few more weeks to purchase squares for the 2011 Memorial Quilt. This is such a beautiful way to honor your loved one that has passed. Don't miss your opportunity to have your glider memorialized on the 2011 quilt.

Val, I just purchased a 2011 quilt square for my beloved Zoey, but missed the part about putting in my info. The paypal payment from n_c_ford@yahoo.com is from me.

Glider's name: Zoey
Date of death: June 13, 2011

There are so many precious babies on these quilts. Zachary and Sophie on the 2010 quilt are mine.

This is an excellent and very compassionate idea.

The 2011 Quilt will feature a special piece of artwork on the squares. We are very happy to be able to add this feature to our quilts and are grateful to a very special artist in our community for creating this special piece for us.


We will also have a special art piece for the 2012 quilt.

Remember, you can purchase your quilt squares at any time. Keep this in mind throughout the year.

The 2011 quilt made its first showing at the 2012 RRRoundup. It is a beautiful piece of art which honors those gliders who selflessly gave to research so that others will have a better life.

Just a reminder that you can purchase squares for the quilt all year long. The 2012 quilt will also feature a unique piece of art. This is a really special way to honor a glider who has passed.


Also remember that you can request to have one or more of the quilts sent to your gathering for display.

The SUGAR Group will be closing sales for 2012 quilt squares at the end of this month so that the quilt can be made before the RRRoundup. If you lost a glider in 2012 (whether or not you had a necropsy) and you want to honor him/her with a square on the quilt, then please visit our website ASAP and purchase your square. You can see pictures of previous years' quilts and see how beautiful they are. These quilts travel the nation all year being displayed at various glider gatherings in honor of our beloved gliders who have passed away. You can also purchase for a friend if you want to give them this gift. ;)

If you had a glider pass before this year and would like to add them to a quilt, you can do that as well. We have a quilt just for that purpose! ;)
