CWA members create memorial quilt
Members of the Woy Woy branch of the Country Women's Association have created a memento for a local woman who recently lost her mother.
"Julie, who had recently lost her mum, was at a loss for what to do with some of her beloved mum's clothing when her daughter suggested that they have them made into a memorial quilt," said branch publicity officer Ms Emily Bowtell.
"They had no idea how to have this special piece made and, with neither Julie nor her two daughters being quilters, did not know where to start.
"As luck would have it, Julie's neighbour is friends with one of our members and put Julie in touch with us.
"Two of our resident quilters, Jane and Wendy, gladly accepted the task," Ms Bowtell said.
"Two quilts were presented to Julie's daughters Jessica and Kimberly on August 3 as a beautiful reminder of their grandmother.
"Julie also had some knitted squares which her mum had not had chance to put together.
"Our Lesley crocheted the squares together, which we were able to give to Julie as well.
"We hope that these pieces serve as a reminder of a loving mother and grandmother for many years to come," Ms Bowtell said.
