Charity Event - Quilters Needed

We shall be holding our very first 'Charity Quiltathon' in January.

The aim is to provide five charities with quilts, cushions or what ever to help them raise money.

The chosen charities are -

Yorkshire Cancer Research
Yorkshire Air Ambulance
Bridlington Life Boat
Dogs Trust
& Project Linus

We are asking for donations of fabric, orphan blocks, embroideries, jelly strips, scraps, UFO's etc from individuals and companies.  If you have anything to donate either bring it along to us here at The Royal Bridlington, or you can post it to us at

The Royal Bridlington
Shaftesbury Road
Bridlington
East Yorkshire
YO15 3NP

Tel 01262 672433    email - fiona@royalhotelbrid.co.uk

We also need quilters to come along and sew, sew, sew. The dates are 14th & 15th January 2014.

In return we will provide refreshments and lunch.  For those who want to stay over, we are offering a very very special rate for B & B of just £20.
So if you can help, please reserve your place.

If we mange to make enough items then we may well hold a charity coffee morning after the event and display the quilts before we donate them to the charities.

I have been raising funds for a roll of wadding by making Jams & Chutneys all year.
