Last month we had our fourth Quilt Show in aid of Stroud Women’s Refuge at Beresford House, which offers help, advice and support to families affected by domestic abuse. The show took place in the same village hall where the group meets to sew.
There was a display of quilts and other stitched items, a tombola, a raffle with a group-made quilt as a prize and lots of things for sale. Not to mention teas and (if I say so myself) delicious homemade cakes. Part of the display showed 10 quilts and 3 knitted blankets we had made for the women and children at the local women’s refuge.
Despite rain on one of the days, there was a constant stream of visitors. The atmosphere was very friendly, and the visitors gave generously to the cause. Altogether the show made £611, after expenses, for the refuge.
Here are a few items from the show. To see more, go to the Gallery page.
