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.
