December 2022 Quilt Donations

Quilting Corners Guild made their presentation of quilts to our four community partners on December 6. Once again our membership has been very busy and created 79 Quilts of Comfort, 8 Quilts of Valour and 107 quilted stockings since our last presentations in July 2022. We are always so happy to share with Matthew’s House Hospice, Quilts of Valour-Canada, My Sister’s Place and Simcoe Manor. Each of these services provide important supports and comforts within our community. Since 2006, QCG has made 1445 quilts and 807 stockings in support of these important organizations. We will take a little break to spend time with family and friends during the holidays, but our needles will be ready to sew in 2023. Happy Holidays! 😊

Christmas comes to Alliston each year when Quilting Corners Guild presents quilts to our four community partners: Quilts of Valour – Canada, Matthews House Hospice, Simcoe Manor and My Sister’s Place. Since our last presentation in December 2021 our guild members have created and completed 104 Quilts of Comfort, 67 of these bright and beautiful quilts were presented last evening. The remaining quilts await distribution in the coming months. A job well done everyone!

QoV – Canada Recipient

I was delighted this morning to receive a pic from our local QoV rep of one of our guild quilts being presented to a veteran. The recipient was Garrett A, an Indigenous Veteran, who had multiple tours in Afghanistan.  The quilt is a zig zag design made from the Northcott Canadiana collection. Great to see our community outreach in action.

Quilting Corners Guild Provides Comfort to Ukrainian Family

On Tuesday, May 3rd Quilting Corners Guild had the honour of presenting 3 Quilts of Comfort to Natalia, Dana & Tim, who have just arrived in the Alliston area from Ukraine. They are a Ukrainian family who left everything behind, including their father. Cathy and Ian True and their family have generously welcomed them to Canada and are providing shelter and support. The family is adjusting to their new surroundings and the children have started school this week. They are a lovely family and so appreciative of all the kindness shown to them.
