Quilting and Sewing for Others

The Rosie - Addenbrookes

For the past ten years we have been making cot quilts for the Neo Natal Unit. They are used on the wards and every mother takes one home. The quilts are made by members of Cambridge Quilters, other quilt groups including Barton Mills, Orwell and Great Chesterford. A number of individuals also contribute quilts they and their sewing groups have made. We deliver fifty quilts each month – 6,000 so far.  Last year we made festive quilts and Christmas stockings for the unit.  Instructions for the cot quilts can be found below.

Breast Care Unit - Addenbrookes

This project has been running for eight years. Heart shaped cushions and drainage bags are made for patients who have had surgery. There is also a changing display of quilts in the waiting room.

 

Fulbourn Hospital and local Care Homes

This is a new project making fidget quilts for people with dementia particularly those in care homes. We are also making a textured wall hanging for one of the wards at Fulbourn.

 

Raffle Quilts

A raffle quilt is made each autumn for the Sales Day or Exhibition.  Proceeds go to a nominated charity chosen by members at the AGM.  In recent years we have made donations to:

  • MacMillan Cancer Care
  • Sick Children's Trust
  • Arthur Rank Hospice Charity
  • Acorn House
