The "Community Quilts" group meets on the first Wednesday of each month at Nimble Fingers. Our members originally came from the Grassroots Guild but there are now also some Village Quilters. We have been busy in 2010: we started by giving 24 quilts to deserving families and children in Richmond. A really good quilt was donated to a retirement home to raffle for funds. Another quilt was used by the group to raise funds with which to purchase more batting. In October 2010 we heard about Mr & Mrs Duma who do wonderful work looking after 34 orphans. The group had a trip to their "Tholuthande" home in the Valley and everyone was given a quilt. We hope to, in this way, bring warmth and colour into their lives.
Any interested quilters are welcome: contact Elizabeth Woodcock 031 765 7247
