Manningham Uniting Church’s Pilgrim Patchworkers have for many years made knee quilts for elderly or infirm church members. The group has recently become involved in an outreach activity making quilts for the Aussie Hero Quilts Program (AHQ). This program encourages members to make quilts and laundry bags for Australian Servicemen and Women currently on deployment; mostly in the Middle East, South Sudan, Egypt and Israel.
Members of the group will display their work at the Manningham UC Festive Fair on Saturday 14 November and will be happy to share information about this national program.
The Festive Fair at the Atkinson Street, Templestowe church will run from noon to 8 pm and will include food stalls, entertainment, a ‘Frozen’ bouncing castle, books, cakes, toys, ‘treasures’, Devonshire teas, preserves, plants and other novelty stalls, as well as a visit from the local fire brigade.
