NEWS FROM CALDER QUILTERS
The members of Calder Quilters made a quilt which included patchwork squares and Peter Rabbit characters.
The group exhibited the completed quilt at the Great Northern Quilt Show at Harrogate in September 2023. We were delighted to overhear wonderful comments when we visited the show on our Annual Trip.
The Peter Rabbit Quilt has been donated to The Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice in Huddersfield . It will be a valued Wall Hanging.
Calder Quilters meet the first and third Friday afternoon form 1.30 p.m. at the Maurice Jagger Centre…we have coffee/tea and talk…sometimes we sew and discuss our sewing projects! A warm welcome is extended to new members.

Look at the beautiful flower arrangement outside the Centre. Thank you Lynda Greenwood for doing this for us. You have kept the outside of the Centre looking lovely all year.
8th August 2023 – A massive Thank You to these wonderful Lloyds Bank employees, Amanda Coyne, Antonella Raywood, Leon Ashton, Max Patterson, Steph Kershaw, Clare Sherington, Jess Mollicone, Claire Chang, Laura Martindale and Carl Critchlow who gave their time to clear our well overgrown and rather sad looking garden. It looks very smart now and has helped the Charity prepare for new fencing being erected next week. They worked so hard and we cannot thank them enough. Thankfully the rain stayed away too.
