Community Quilting has been fortunate to have the use of the room at Stan Wadlow Community Centre as well as storage for the necessary items such as fabric, batting, sewing machines and many sundry items. The City of Toronto Parks and Recreation is now renovating the building and plans eliminate this storage space.
We will continue to meet at Stan Wadlow. We will be organizing ourselves so that the necessities for quilting will be stored at volunteers’ homes and transported when specific items are required.
At this time, a search has been started to find a new location that has both a workroom and storage facilities. Suggestions from the membership would be much appreciated. Contact Wendy Dines for details of the requirements for a ‘new home’.
Our guild members have been busy completing quilts for Community Quilting. A big ‘Thank You’ for the time and effort all of you have made in the creation of these beautiful quilts for people facing challenging situations.
