Nothing warms the heart like a handmade patchwork quilt, sewn together with love and created for good.
The Stitching Hearts patchwork group formed 12 years ago with the aim to create beautiful quilts to distribute to those in the community who need a little warmth and care in their lives. The team members spend hours donating their time and efforts to make amazingly intricate quilts to donate to various charity groups, individuals and hospitals.
Residents from a variety of local nursing homes, special needs schools and The MS Society have benefited from the creativity and warmth of a Stitching Hearts patchwork quilt. Also a number of organisations receive quilts on an ongoing basis as needed. Among these are Palliative Care Concord Hospital, Ronald McDonald House, Westmead Children’s Hospital, Concord and Drummoyne Meals on Wheels, Domestic Violence NSW, and 3 local Women and Girl’s Refuges. Each year, three quilts are given to Concord Senior Citizen’s Club for lucky door prizes at their Christmas Lunch.
This amazing dedication is what drew Canada Bay Club to The Stitching Hearts group. Our team wanted to ensure the good work of these keen, industrious group of ladies continues, so earlier this year we made our own contribution. Canada Bay Club’s donation helped to fund essential supplies, enabling the group to continue to donate their special products.
For the past 12 years, The Stitching Hearts has been gathering together to sew, create and give back to the community. During the years they have also donated their wares to various charities and organisations to raffle and auction off at fundraising events, helping to raise thousands of dollars for worthy groups.
Canada Bay Club is proud of our association with the Stitching Hearts team and believes in their aim to continue to make and distribute hundreds of quilts throughout the community to those people who are in need of comfort.
