“The Federation Quilter” quilting group has been in operation for many years and has grown to include 12 members.
Group members are extremely supportive of each other in their endeavours (wonderful beginner support) & the close warm camaraderie that is felt by the members make our meetings enjoyable productive ’fun’ events, resulting in a great deal of personal satisfaction in our individual achievements. New members are most welcome.
Members have made (and continue to make) special ‘theme’ quilts for personal & family use, as well as a number of items for the VVF to auction for fund raising purposes or to display at our Marion club rooms.
Quilts have been made and donated to the Victorian Bush Fire Appeal, Queensland floods and to our troops in Afghanistan. Several quilts have also been donated to RSL Care Homes for homeless veterans, each veteran getting to keep the quilt when they leave. It is hoped that some comfort comes from the “somebody cares for me” feeling.
Sewing & Embroidery
We have joined the quilters on Tuesdays between 1000 am & 3 pm.
Although called sewing & embroidery we also do knitting and many other crafts.
New members would be most welcome to come & learn a new craft or teach the rest of us a new skill.
Come for a day & join us for coffee (or tea), we would love to see you.
Non members of the Federation are welcome to ‘come & try’ for three (3) visits, if they wish to continue they are required to join the Federation, Associate membership is only $35.00 a year.
