Work Day

Yesterday, February 24th, a group of Highland Quilt Guild members got together to assemble “Comfort Quilt” tops to be donated to the mental health unit at St. Martha’s Hospital.  10 tops were completed and they will be quilted by members of the guild.

NOTE:  The recipe for the brownies that Valerie brought is now available under the recipes tab above.

Chemo Hats

We had a fun and productive evening this past Wednesday!  About a dozen of us got together to work on Chemo hats for children and adults at the IWK Hospital and St. Martha’s Hospital.  Several members also made hats at home and brought them with them.
