'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.
