Rose City Quilters have a challenge in the National Orchid Show currently being held in Palmerston North. Our very own Dianne Southey won Best of Show as judged by the Orchid Society. Congratulations and well done, Dianne.
Here is her quilt:
Anyone who would like to donate quilts to Red Cross for distribution to people in Christchurch affected by the earthquakes can deliver them to Dianne at 318 College Street, Palmerston North.
Dianne has been in touch with local Red Cross who say they can courier any items down to Christchurch for distribution.
The situation is probably a lot worse than we can imagine – our life goes on, theirs is VERY disrupted. Plus there are the continual after-shocks, which may continue for weeks, and some are as big as earthquakes we all feel and talk about here (5+ magnitudes, not good). Constant earthquakes are very distressing.
Quilts will help to provide comfort where needed.
Please pass this message on to anybody else you know who can help.
Many grateful thanks
An amendment - we will be sending the quilts to Christchurch to the Christchurch Quilt Guild for distribution.
