Marlene Stewart encouraged us to save our scraps at home when we trim off the quilt batting from our quilts, as this works wonderfully as stuffing for making bed mats for the homeless. These keep them off the ground and can be used to wrap themselves in. She also demonstrated how they are made in a small sample. Gwen and Susan were collecting and tagging the items brought for the Quilt Show Boutique.
It was a lovely time as usual and now that spring is just around the corner, we hope we’ll have more members enjoying this informal morning.
