Want to help the Bushfire victims?

While we have been enjoying the cooler weather to hit Sydney, other part of the country have been devastated by the bushfires. Judy and I have been talking about what we can do to help.We will donate over $500 worth fabric for groups to make quilts to raffle to raise money for those who are affected by this event. I would hope that between us we could raise $2,000 for the Red Cross Bushfire Appeal.

If your group would like some fabric to make a quilt to raffle, please e-mail us, letting us know where you are from and your group (and any other information you want to include).
We ask that you also send us a picture of the finished quilt for the blog with 3 months and let us know how much money you raised from the raffle.

We have also be contacted by Carol Freedman who lives in north east Victoria. She is organising quilts for the fire victims. She has asked people to make and send her one 12 inch block. Post you blocks to
PO Box 243
Barnawartha Vic 3688.

If you want a phone number just e-mail me. We are also giving away fabric to support her efforts.
You can find it on the home page.
