On Saturday I went to a small rural town to spend the day sewing with others for “The Homeless.”
It was a beautiful drive to the Mingenew, 45 kms away, with the sun shining driving past the new crops growing in the huge paddocks.
I was met by Kym, who organised the day and runs the local craft shop. I was shown into the pub’s dining room were we set up our machine’s and introduced to the other ladies.
Shelly Hubon from HD Streetwise came form Perth to tell us about how the Shaggy Quilts will make a difference to the homeless she helps.
We had a great day,sewing madly, chatting, eating yummy scones for morning tea and making friends with a new group of lovely ladies. We completed 8 quilts in 6 hours by 8 ladies.
Look forward to doing it again next year but for two days and then we can make many more quilts Kym and Shelly...
