WAQA member Val York distributed quilts directly to 7 families affected by the fires in the Perth Hills. One of the families, whose son has Asperger’s Syndrome, was particularly thrilled and delighted, as he was greatly comforted by the quilt. Val also sold some of her stash to fundraise for linen, towels etc to accompany the community quilts.
On March Sewing day Jenny Anning from Stoneville/Parkerville Quilters accepted another 14 men’s quilts to supplement the 80 quilts their group had made for other families affected by the fires.
Thanks to all who contributed to the Bush Fire Quilt Appeal!
