This friendly group of ladies meets each Thursday at the Miranda Church Hall from 9.30am to 12 noon. Come in for a cuppa, chat and friendship as well as learning about many aspects of craft, including quilting, patchwork, sewing, embroidery, bear making, knitting, card making and more. Not to be missed! For further information please contact Christine on 9522 5237 or Robyn on 9543 0225 or just drop in.
Our craft Group makes quilts for people in need. The above photo was taken in June 2019 when Robyn took 15 quilts up to Sutherland Shire Family Services in Jannali to be given to abused families and families in need. A further four quilts were delivered a few days later.
Some of the ladies in our craft group and their friends have been active in these COVID-19 times. In September 2020, 5 beautiful quilts, 8 woollen blankets, 30 teddies, 25 beanies, 2 scarves and 3 hoodies were donated to Sutherland Shire Family Services in Jannali. These items were gratefully received and will go to families in need.
Through this initiative we reach out to local families in need at Christmas time. Members of the congregation, the craft group and the community garden donate food which is then distributed by church members to needy families.
