HUMBOLDT — A local group of quilters has donated 74 quilts to organizations that need them.
After a workshop to label and disburse the quilts was held Oct. 20 and 21, the Prairie Patchworkers Quilt Guild of Humboldt gave 52 quilts and 12 pillowcases to the Ronald MacDonald House, 21 quilts and four capes to the Humboldt District Hospital for those receiving chemotherapy, and one quilt to the upcoming Festival of Wreaths.
“The members of our guild donated their skills, time, material and machines to make these quilts during the COVID-19 lock down,” said Deb Haryett, the co-president, in an email. “None of this would have been possible without them.”
The guild noted the donation was made possible by grants by Saskatchewan Lotteries and Humboldt Good Neighbor Store.
Requests are being taken by the guild for those organizations that need quilts donated.
