Request for donation of quilting accoutrements

Need help de-stashing?

Then Guild Member Valerie Garton can help!
She is looking for donations of fabrics, batting of any size, and "bits and pieces" that can be refashioned into tactile quilts, specifically for Alzheimer Patient stimulation.

Called "Fiddle Quilts" these items are not your average quilt for warmth... they have zips, lace, buttons, shoulder pads, shirt fronts, velcro, pockets, elastic on toggles, buckles and other "fiddly" things sewn on for the occupational therapy of those who reside at The Uniting Church Nursing Home in Haberfield.

Valerie is aided in this worthwhile exercise by residents of the neighbouring Retirement Home.
Should any member wish to contact Valerie regarding specifics of the donation materials required, or delivery of such, then please contact her on Ph No. 02 97435718
She will also be attending the forthcoming General Meeting of the Guild on Saturday, and can accept donated items there.
