Quilters get crafty for a good cause
The Cherryblossum Quilters held a special meeting on Saturday, dedicated to crafting quilts for Princess Margaret Hospital.
The quilters are a group of keen sewers from across Manjimup, Pemberton, Northcliffe who usually meet once a month.
This month they planned an extra meeting to donate their time and expert craftsmanship to a good cause.
Supported by the Manjimup Lion’s Club, the quilters spent the morning sewing quilts for families of premature and stillborn babies.
Quilter Lesley Surrall said the quilts added a personal touch and could help families at a stressful time.
“Premi babies and things like that, they’ll be given one for each family and they usually take them home with them,” she said.
“With a still-born, it sort of helps with that grieving process.”
