Maclean Patchwork and Quilters finish quilt delivery

Can you believe it is nearly the end of July 2020?

Our group has been busy for the past eight months making quilts for the bush fire survivors (they don’t want to be known as victims) of both Nymboida and Rappville.

On Sunday July 19 we ventured over to Rappville to deliver our final collection of quilt donations. Total number was 28. Our contact in Rappville was Connie and her husband Wayne, who welcomed us into their home and gave us a beautiful morning tea. Connie and Wayne will be distributing the quilts among the community. We did get to meet a couple of locals who expressed their thanks to our group. They went away happy and that was our aim.

Our summary of donation quilts for both Nymboida and Rappville was 67. Truly a great effort by our members. Well done all.

Over the past month we have managed to regroup and get together. The chattering that is going on proves we have all missed our get togethers. Our fearless Blogger, Linda has done a great job of keeping us informed and inspired with the quilts posted.

COVID -19 is still impacting on our ability to meet but we just ask that everyone use their commonsense and follow the rules for hygiene and self distancing.

We still get together on Tuesdays at 9am and welcome any one in the community who would like to join us. Just contact our secretary Sue on 0408 190 697.

Happy sewing.
