A GROUP of women at Sorrento has been stitching in time for 25 years, making up to 100 quilts a year to raise money for charity.
The women meet at Sorrento Portsea Senior Citizens Centre and last week, while celebrating their long time together with a lunch at Blairgowrie, they were presented with a book by Amanda Stuart that “highlights the joy and companionship they have shared over so many years”.
“They all feel the same – every member is kind, supportive and always on hand to help when needed. And everyone loves the afternoon tea,” Stuart, the group’s vice-president, said.
While quilts are the group’s main product, dolls and teddies have been made and sent to an orphanage in Africa.
