Fashion 2C Embroidery Stitch button

3 of the wonderful Canadian Red Cross Quilts on exhibition at the Weaving Musical Threads [WMT] trade stand in Hall 12 at the Fashion, Embroidery & Stitch Show.

The CRCQ Research Group – Canadian Red Cross Quilt book Comfort from Kindness will be for sale

'One quilter with 18 children walked 2 miles every week so that she could sew...’

A wonderful opportunity to see this outstanding exhibition: quilts made by thousands of groups of women all over Canada, as a compassionate contribution to the WWII effort.

They were made with all manner of materials, sent over to the UK and given to displaced people: a beautiful gift of comfort, colour and warmth – with love sewn in.

Now a unique collection, preserved in celebration of quilting and social history.

There is also an opportunity to donate new blankets of compassion and comfort.
