Quilters raise £250 for disabled riding charity
7:00am Sunday 20th October 2013 in Local
The Forest Quilters raised £250 for a disabled riding charity at their latest exhibition.
The two-day exhibition saw 40 quilts and more than 100 pieces of work exhibited at Trinity Methodist Church in Kidderminster.
Chairman Glynis Rabin said: “We have more than 50 members and we have an exhibition every other year. It’s really to celebrate the diversity and the skills of our quilters. We encourage everybody to exhibit a quilt.
“The quilts had a whole range of skills from traditional patchwork to art work where people dye their fabric.”
There was also a competition at the exhibition where quilters were given the same piece fabric to incorporate into a tea cosy and members of the public could pick the winner.
The quilters donated £250 to the Riding for the Disabled Association in Blakebrook and will use the remaining £750 for group funds.
They chose the charity as it was a local charity benefitting local children.
The Forest Quilters started about 20 years ago and a couple of the original members are still in the group.
