Anna, a member of the Waverley Patchworkers let us know about a call out to all quilters from the Guild President:
Many of us are wanting to help, and for the moment, money is what the victims of the bushfire are needing. But as time goes on, we feel that it would be helpful to provide as many people as possible with a quilt, symbol of love, comfort, caring, warmth, and compassion. If you have a quilt that you don't need anymore, one that you have just finished for no particular reason, one that just needs binding maybe,(and you can bind it quickly) and you are happy to donate it, please get it to one of the quilt shops listed below.
Do you have some fabric at home that you could make up into a quick quilt? Perhaps you have wadding that you might like to donate. Waverley has quite a bit of fabric, but we are short of wadding. ...
With all the quilt groups in Victoria, and beyond, surely we can provide at least one quilt for every family who lost their home.
These are shops where you can drop off quilts:-
Somerset Patchwork 491 High St Rd Mt Waverley
Lilly Patches 159 Boronia Rd Boronia
Chandlers Cottage 17 Keys Rd Beaumaris
Foothills Fabric 1567 Burwood H'way Tecoma
Needles & Pins 102 Melbourne Hill Rd Warrandyte
Sandlyn House Mooroolbark (From here they are going direct to the Alexandra quilt group and will be given to families who are camped in tents and are feeling the cold at night!)
For more information please contact WaverleyPatchworkers:
And if you would like to see some of the beautiful quilts that have already headed off to provide some much need comfort & warmth, then pop over here.
