Donated fabric

Ever wondered what happens with fabric donated to Waverley Patchworkers?  This is one example.

top made from donated fabricRenae read on this website that we make quilts for various agencies and so thought we could make use of some pieces she no longer needed. In the box Norma our gift quilt coordinator collected were blocks cut but not assembled, obviously Renae had changed her mind about the design or the colours. Norma has a great talent for seeing the best in things, she added some purple and white fabric and quickly made this fresh and bright top which when finished will go to a teenager living in a supported home. Rene is delighted with the result and the good use made of her unwanted bits and pieces.

The next Gift Quilt Sewing Day is Wednesday 23 September at the  Glen Iris Valley Recreation Club, 260 – 270 High Street Rd, Mt Waverley.

    I have just received a piece of red and white polka dot fabric and my name tag in the mail from waverly patchworkers inc. there was no other information or instructions attached. Could you please let me know what I am supposed to do with this fabric or was it just used to protect the membership badge?
