The Harbourside Quilters started 10 years ago at Harbourside Village and has made quilts for various projects including the Free the Bears fund and a women’s refuge.
Coralie Clarke, an experienced quilter, started teaching the group how to quilt at Harbourside and is now a resident too.
‘It’s a joint effort and we use scraps from a quilt shop I used to own as well as other materials that group members bring in,’ she said.
‘It really is a great group and the quilting provides us with a reason to get together once a month and do something for a good cause.’
Current projects include knitting booties, beanies and jumpers for babies in Zimbabwe, as well as making small quilts for children and others for Wheelchairs for Kids.
