2nd May Community Day

Hi Everyone,

Today at quilting we were visited by Krystiana from RizeUp who spoke to us about the ongoing and growing battle against domestic violence in Australia. RizeUp is responsible for the fit out of houses or units for people or families fleeing domestic violence by providing a welcoming home environment. Hunters Hill Quilters is supporting RizeUp at our upcoming Quilt Show in August. 

We were also able to supply Krystiana with 6 quilts and 3 knitted blankets for future homes. 

Jane is delivering 40 Baby quilts to Olivia for distribution on Mother’s Day for Little Wonder @ RPA hospital. Thank you to our members who continue to support Little Wonder by making Baby quilts.
As above RizeUp received 6 quilts and 3 knitted blankets today.
