Who We Are

Golden Threads was founded in August of 2012 by Tara Evans and Evance Soash. We wanted to share our love for the art of quilting with the north Omaha community. We began planning a "Quilts 4 Seniors" project after seeing the need for seniors to receive regular visits and companionship after being placed in a senior care facility, nursing home or senior apartment. We wanted them to have a quilt to keep with them to remember that someone visited with them from the community and that they are thought of and cared about.

Not only do we provide the seniors with a warm and loving quilt but we also meet weekly at the Charles B. Washington Branch Library at 2868 Ames Avenue on Tuesdays at 5pm to have fun and fellowship while making seniors lap quilts. We teach anyone 18 and older to make lap quilts for themselves after making lap quilts for seniors.

Omaha World Herald Article:

Deacon Brooks received a quilt from Golden Threads quilting prior to passing away...with our Quilts 4 seniors project we visit nursing homes and other senior centers to give quilts to those seniors who may be experiencing feelings of depression or loneliness. We also give to seniors to show that they are loved and appreciated.
