how you can help MAKE quilts for sick kids

 

don't worry, even if you can't sew, there are lots of ways to help


  • Send us your quilt tops and we will have them quilted

  • Attend one of our many workshop days - beginners welcome!

  • Donate materials for our volunteers to use for quilts

  • Organize your own local group for a quilt-making day

  • Donate your machine quilting services to help finish quilts
     

Each handmade quilt for children costs between $200-$400 to make, including all labour and materials.  

Your generous donations of materials, quilts, services or even funds helps each day!


Without our amazing and loving volunteers all across Australia, we would not be able to provide these gorgeous quilts to so many children in need.
