If you are interested in sewing and handicrafts where you can produce work as an individual or in a group situation and make a difference in the community then the Island Quilters group is certainly worth contacting.
Aileen Peak from Island Quilters says that they have about 60 members in the group and have a room at the Bribie Island Community Arts Centre. “Our aims are to advance quilting and crafts and support each other in all skills,” said Aileen. “We do charity work giving quilts and many other items to the Mater Children’s Hospital heart ward and Linus Sunshine at Nambour.
Als,o we donate quilts to many charities such as STEPS and Breast Cancer groups.” Aileen said that the group have a Facebook page under Island Quilters Bribie which displays their work each week as well as sharing with other groups. She said that they have a quilt show coming up in May. “We will raffle a quilt at our show and the money will go to Bribie Neighbourhood Centre,” she said.
