On our first night back after Xmas Di W suggested that we make and donate some quilts for children who have lost everything in the floods. Great idea Di.
The next week we arrived with fabric, sewing machines, and cutting boards ready to sew.
Letitia did a great job delegating jobs to all of our enthusiastic ladies. She had girls cutting fabric, ironing, sewing then squaring up blocks

Thank you so much ladies for giving your time, fabric, enthusiasm etc. to make these very colourful and happy quilts. I know there will be some very happy children snuggling into these very soon as the nights get cooler. We have been in contact with the Northern CWA. We have also heard that Gail Chalker of Sew Creative in Gatton is organising collections of donations for Grantham as well. Fortunately with both we are able to get free transport as we have also collected books, fabric, thread, patterns etc so we have quite a collection of goodies for some very needy friends. We will make a decision in the next week. Thanks so much again ladies. It's such a pleasure being involved with such a warm and caring group of ladies. Debby.
