Timeless Quilters’ gift is ‘sew’ perfect for Christmas babies

Dec 17, 2023

The Timeless Quilters have again shown their incredible generosity, and talents, by donating dozens of exquisite quilts to Port Macquarie Base Hospital’s Maternity Unit.

Eight special quilts have a Christmas theme and will be given to mums and bubs during the holiday season.

Another 16 quilts are destined to bring warmth and happiness to families who welcome their new arrival in the new year.

This long-held tradition, orchestrated by long-time member Nola Faulkes, always brings so much joy to the Maternity Unit every December.

The ladies also kindly donated three quilts to Palliative Care in the hope they will be treasured by patients and their families who have a difficult Christmas ahead of them. 

If that wasn’t enough, the quilters also raised $1000 to support breast cancer patients at Mid North Coast Cancer Institute in Port Macquarie.

President Priscilla Stott said the Timeless Quilters had two groups; a Wednesday group that meets from 9am to 1pm, and a Thursday group that meets from 9.30am to 1.30pm. Both groups meet upstairs at Port Macquarie Sailing Club, McInherney Park, Port Macquarie.

Ms Stott said the group was a wonderful way to meet new friends while enjoying the creativity of individual and group projects, such as the Christmas baby quilts.

Proceeds from the Timeless Quilters’ Christmas Fair at Panthers in October enabled the group to make the $1000 donation in support of local breast cancer patients.
