Tre­foil Guild do­nates Mem­ory Quilts to Row­land Vil­lage

Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - Community News -

For the past few months the mem­bers of The Hills Evening Tre­foil Guild have been busy mak­ing Mem­ory Quilts for the res­i­dents of Row­land Vil­lage Gal­ston. Mem­ory quilts help evoke mem­o­ries with small ac­tiv­i­ties sewn onto the quilt. These ac­tiv­i­ties in­volve the senses as well as re­mem­ber­ing the pur­pose of the ac­tiv­ity, for ex­am­ple us­ing a zip­per to open and close or putting but­tons through but­ton holes, plait­ing wool “hair” or in­ves­ti­gat­ing the con­tents of a pocket. It has been a de­light to work on this spe­cial ser­vice project as we came up with a va­ri­ety of ac­tiv­i­ties. Fi­nally with 10 quilts com­pleted some of the mem­bers took great de­light in de­liv­er­ing and do­nat­ing the quilts to very ap­pre­cia­tive staff of the Mark Don­ald­son VC House.

The Hills Evening Tre­foil Guild is the adult sec­tion of the Girl Guides and is open to any woman over 18yrs who has made her prom­ise in any sec­tion of the Guide Move­ment or the Par­ent Sup­port Group or will­ing to make the Guide Prom­ise The Hills Evening Tre­foil guild area ex­tends from Par­ra­matta up to the Hills Dis­trict so if you like the idea of com­bin­ing ser­vice to the com­mu­nity with so­cial ac­tiv­i­ties…and we are very so­cial, it is a great way to re­con­nect with guid­ing friends with new mem­bers warmly wel­comed.

We meet on the 1st Wed­nes­day evening of the month at var­i­ous lo­ca­tions from 7.30 – 9.30, for more in­for­ma­tion please con­tact Chris on 0438 767 750. A yummy sup­per is guar­an­teed!
