TREHERBERT QUILTING GROUP
£638 – MICRO FUND – FEB 2017
|This is a well-established group based in Valleys Kids Treherbert, providing skills development opportunities and companionship for its members. Club members share an interest and hobby which brings them together on a regular basis, helping to combat loneliness and isolation. Tables were available at location where the group meets, but they were not in great condition and are sometimes being used by others.
“Our group benefited from the grant provided by Pen y Cymoedd purchasing 6 new tables to use in the class enabling members to work without worrying about damaging their items of quilted work. The tables are easier to move enabling members to use sewing machines in class and we have attracted new members. We had a good experience applying for the grant and the staff at Pen y Cymoedd were helpful” Quote from Barbara Doughty – Treherbert Quilting Group
Other members Quotes: When we are assembling the quilts we need a large area and it is wonderful to be able to put it out flat / it’s amazing to have clean smooth tables to work with fabric, now laying out a quilt is a pleasure
