A small group gathered this week. As always it was a most enjoyable meeting.
Next week at noon, we have someone from RPA Hospital Newborn intensive care unit coming to speak to us about their organisation and requirements.
The unit looks after more than 950 sick and premature babies each year. The hospital has a very active group of volunteers to support the unit.
Donations of knitted goods, baby quilts, larger quilts etc are welcomed. Gift donations are hugely helpful to use as prizes for their raffles and various events. Gift bags are given to each family in the unit on special occasions such as Christmas, Easter, Mothers Day, World Prematurity Day and Fathers Day.
I look forward to the meeting and to learn more about the organisation.
Wadding for Baby Quilts:
To avoid confusion with the baby quilts, we have decided that the cotton wadding that Robyn S looks after, will be used in all baby quilts. This includes those made for the Aboriginal Unit.
Show and Tell:
Carolyn brought in another 10 baby quilts.
Until next week ....
