Our Charities this time -
Yorkshire Air Ambulance, The Children's Hospital, Cherryblossom Dreams, Domestic Violence Accommodation Project. 

The Childrens Hospital, based in Sheffield are trying to raise money to buy a special scanner which will allow them to scan and operate at the same time. This will be one of only two in world. They will become a centre of excellence for the UK and will treat children from all over the UK and other countries too.

CherryBlossom Dreams is a new charity started by another quilter who suffers from Adenoid cystic carcinoma which is a rare and unique form of cancer that is totally unpredictable. She would like to provide a quilt for newly diagnosed people.

Local Volunteers needed to help hand sew down quilt bindings

I am also looking for someone who can print me some labels - like clothing lable, to sew onto each quilt we make.

All being well and we manage to make enough quilts we would like to hold a Quilt Show – 5th & 6th February 2016 at The Royal Bridlington…..helpers needed.
