Saturday 20th September 2014 QSG of NSW talk about Community Quilting

On Saturday the 20th September Ros Moules, the Community Quilts Co-ordinator, will give a talk about the history of the Community Quilts program of the Quilters' Guild of NSW Inc. As the contributing members of other Guilds and quilting groups around the world have all found, making and donating quilts and quilt tops to worthy causes and recipients has brought joy - to both the maker and receiver.

Since 1983 the Community Quilts group belonging to the NSW Guild has been making and donating quilts on behalf of the Guild. It is a voluntary project where members meet to sew quilts for the community, and to date over 2000 quilts have been donated. On-going commitments are to Royal Far West Children’s Home in Manly and to foster children in NSW. Quilts are also donated to various nursing homes and for raffles to raise money for community organisations.

The talk will be given at our new venue for 2014 - The Glover Cottages at 124 Kent Street, Millers Point, Sydney. Guild members pay $5.00 and non-guild members $10.00 to attend visit. Afternoon tea is provided.  Please bring along any quilts you have made or are making for any community quilting programme and share them with us.
