Gift Quilts

Hundreds of quilts are made each year and then given to organisations who need this special support. These include residential accommodation for young people and the Childrens’ Ward of Monash Hospital. We also donate quilts for not-for-profit organisations to use in their fundraising.

Quilts are made using donated materials and time, and we are generously supported in this work by a number of businesses.

A gift quilt sewing day is held when there is a 5th Wednesday in the month, and in between members share in the various stages of production.

    I am a Waverley member and would like to know how to Log In to the website. I haven’t registered a user name or password and there doesn’t appear to be any information on how to do so. Are you able to help?

    Thank you

      There is no member area on this website. Waverley Patchworkers members are sent a monthly newsletter to their email account.

  2. I am interested in joining a chapter. My main interest is needle turn appliqué but feel I would like to share in other people’s ideas and quilting expertise.

    Thanking you in anticipation,
    Sincerely Rosemary Maher

    I have enjoyed my membership at Waverley for quite a few years.
    The recent decision of eliminating the posting the hard copy of the monthly newsletter is both arbitrary and discrimiatory.
    This move disavantage members that are technolically inable to download the document.
    My suggestion is to add a charge to yearly membership fee for those who prefer to receive their newsletter by mail.
    I am sure that members are entitled to get their newsletter in advance of the monthly general meeting. The members should be able to gain important information without going to extra inconvenience of going to sub group meetings to collect it.
    I urge you to rethink this move as l believe it will prove to be most ill advised.

      Hi Liz
      We thought long and hard about all options including your suggestion, before making the decision to provide the Newsletter by email only, with some pick up points for members who do not have the internet.
      With the website now up and running you will find more information appearing here, including details of the speaker who will be at the upcoming Monthly Meeting, once the change is implemented.

    Waverley Quilters have been suppling quilts to Monash Children’s Hospital for many years. The dedication and care put into each an every quilt is remarkable. I am privilege to be able to gift these quilts to families and their child and see the joy this gives the family and child at often a most difficult time. I can not thank you all enough in the time and care you place on each and every quilt.
    Thank you

    I was the successful bidder in an auction for one of your quilts kindly donated to Eastern Palliative Care for fundraising. The quilt has a Christmas theme and looks amazing on my wall. It was thoroughly admired by all our guests on Christmas Day and although we have been packing away the Christmas decorations guess what!! the quilt has stayed. We couldn’t bear to put it away as we love looking at the beautiful design and bright colours you chose. My husband has been doing volunteer work writing biographies for terminally ill clients of EPC for the past three years so I am grateful we had the opportunity to bid for this beautiful piece of artwork. Many thanks to all your quilters, your effort and generosity is much appreciated. Kind regards Barbara Hoban-Guy

      Unfortunately we had to cancel our Annual Retreat in 2021 due to the uncertainty around the pandemic and rollout of vaccinations.
