Quilters donate over 30 bags to Women’s Centre

‘I think we just had around 20 last year, so a lot more bags’

The Cariboo Calico Quilters donated over 30 bags made by their members to the 100 Mile House & District Women’s Centre Society.

“I think we just had around 20 last year, so a lot more bags,” says Laurel Murray, a group member. “We also collect food and cosmetic type things… They have a little pamphlet that they send out with things that they’re looking for.”

They consider it a very worthwhile cause with women helping women, says Murray.

“We can all kind of sympathize if we were in that position right what we would need.”

The group had a single day workshop in October and then they had some members take fabric home to make more bags. Some members also made some on other regular quilting days.

They’re pretty pleased with how many bags they managed to make.

“This is awesome.”

The group has had a lot of donated fabric lately, she says.

“It was nice that we had a lot that we could pull from our resources here.”

The other donations included food, cosmetics and other items.
