It can be made from leftover pieces of fabric, a blanket or two and is really easy to make. It’s a great way to use up old clothing, or fabric stashes. With the help of a few friends it can put it together in an afternoon and make a real difference to someone in need.
I’ll be hosting a drop-in ‘making‘ event for everyone to put together quilts and I’d be delighted to invite you and your friends to come along to:
The very lovely Raystitch, Islington, London - Monday 29th October from 10am-10pm.
Last but not least, you can also be involved by simply sending some fabric. We need pieces of fabric that are around 33cm wide. Anything you could slip into an envelope would be great. Or you can donate blankets or larger volumes of cloth - just need to get in touch.
All the quilts we make will simply be given to someone in need – someone on the street, someone suffering a loss or someone that just needs to be noticed.
I hope to see some of you on the 29th.
