This Saturday, October 21, head to the Arms of Australia Inn Museum for the Caring Hearts Community Quilters’ Airing of the Quilts.
The Airing of the Quilts has become a tradition in the local area over the last 18 years, and one that is not to be missed.
During the year, the ladies of the Caring Hearts Community Quilters have been working hard to make over 170 quilts that will be given to palliative care patients in the Hawkesbury, Nepean and Blue Mountains areas, as well as to Penrith Women’s Shelter, The Flying Doctor Service, and other local people in need.
In light of this, the palliative care nurses from Nepean Hospital will be assisting on the day of the airing, with many also making quilts of their own.
This year, there will be plenty of colourful quilts to see, with a trading table, plant stall, hand-made goods, books, Devonshire teas, sausage sizzle and a beautiful raffle quilt with the proceeds of the raffle going to fighting Motor Neurone Disease.
The Caring Hearts Community Quilters’ Airing of the Quilts will be on at the Arms of Australian Inn Museum in Emu Plains on Saturday, October 21 from 9.30am to 2.30pm. Tickets are $5. For more information, call 0438 670 012.
