About the Floods and quilt donations

We have had word from The Quilter's Guild of NSW about "Flood Quilts".  This is what is happening.

The Guild is asking for donations of quilts for flood victims.  The preferred sizes range from 1m x 1.5m to 1.2m x 1.8m.  But any size is OK.

They are also asking for donations of the following:-

Quilt tops not yet quilted
Cotton quilting fabrics for tops and backs
Cotton wadding to make and finish quilts
Quilting books and magazines in good condition

The Guild has many affiliated groups and sponsoring businesses in affected areas.  As they live and work in these areas, the Guild is using this network to assess the need for donations.

The Guild is asking for these donations, as well as any financial contributions, to be posted to:-

Queensland Quilters Inc, GPO 2841, Brisbane QLD 4001

There will not be a centralised drop off point for these quilts , the cost of postage is part of your donation.

However you can deliver donations to the next Guild meeting on 12 February at Burwood RSL.

Here is the Guild's web-site link for full details.

So please have a look in the cupboard, I have some books that I no longer need, not to mention way too much fabric!!!! 

I will stay in touch with the Guild to see what, if anything, is happening with the Victorians
