From its very beginnings thirty five years ago Waverley Patchworkers has taken its place in the community seriously. Tens of thousands of dollars have been raised, thousands of quilts gifted and countless hours of time donated, all given with millions of smiles.
This month the Heartbeat volunteers at Cabrini Hospital are raising money for a new heart-lung machine. First prize in their raffle is a quilt donated by Waverley Patchworkers. Last year a similar raffle raised over $10,000 and we are very pleased that our work can be used in this way.
We also get out and about to promote quilting, as it is a passion we want to share with as many people as possible.
This weekend we will be stitching at Better Homes and Gardens Live held in the Melbourne Exhibition and Conventions Centre (Jeff’s Shed). Drop by and say hello.
