18th May

 Hi Everyone,

Today our group donated several quilts to the Hornsby & Ku-ring-gai Women’s Shelter for their organisation to raise funds. This is a new concept in our partnership with HKWS, but we know that the quilts are appreciated and will bring great joy to the families who purchase them. We look forward to hearing how the funds are used to benefit women and families who seek refuge.

💙💛Blue & Yellow Hearts💙💛 are experiencing a high demand for quilts as the weather cools and we are fortunate to have a health supply of community quilts and were able to donate some this week.

Raffle Quilts for our 2024 show were decided today. Grace spoke to us about the planning of the raffle quilt and whether we would make one or two quilts for the show. Members were encouraged to discuss the making of quilts, Traditional or Modern. The outcome of the vote was to make two raffle quilts one of each type. Kathy has a concept design for the Traditional quilt and spoke about fabrics we could use and how we could make it flow to our ideas for the Modern quilt. At our next Community Day 1st June we will have purchased the fabrics so we can setup work stations for cutting, sewing etc. We will be under the watchful eye of Kathy and her quality control team.
