WELCOME TO GIVING HANDS
GIVING HANDS is a Quilting Matters’ community project. It provides an opportunity for members of the QM community to give to local, worthy causes by using their skills and creativity. We make quilts for children and babies to serve a growing need in the community:
- local Womens’ Refuge
- King Edward Memorial Hospital – neonate ward
- Princess Margaret Hospital – neonate ward
Come and join us… as a member of the Quilting Matters community you are welcome to join the Giving Hands team… we make beautiful community quilts to gift. It is helpful to have the fresh beginnings course under your belt… so you bring good skills and confidence to the group. Your own techniques and skills will naturally grow and develop during your Giving Hands experience.
