Mulhurst Quilters: Giving back to the community

Club donates 44 quilts to community

The Mulhurst Bay Quilters recently reviewed the distribution of Comfort Quilts for 2017, and are so proud to share that more than 44 quilts were delivered to those in need within this wonderful community.

Recipients can be those suffering a serious or terminal illness, victims of a disaster such as fire, or someone grieving the loss of a loved one. We know there are people we miss because we aren’t aware of their situation, and invite anyone who knows of someone who would benefit from the comfort of a snuggly, home made quilt – please contact Valerie Law, our president, at 780-389-2372.

The annual Ladies Day held at the Mulhurst Hall every October is our major fundraiser – the proceeds from which allow us to purchase fabric, notions and other materials needed to create our quilts.

Just recently, the club made 20 adult bibs which were donated to the West Pine Lodge in Winfield. Their lodge manager, Wendy Filewich arranged for resident willing to proudly model the bibs. We are open to request for ways in which we can give back to the community which has given so much to us!
