The Siblings Together Quilting Group is the result of a chance meeting between Lynne Goldsworthy from Lily’s Quilts and her sister. This meeting culminated in the realisation of the previously unreachable goal, to provide homemade quilts for those children participating in the summer camps run by Siblings Together. The response to the appeal by Lynne has been truly overwhelming and we are greatly thankful to Lynne and everyone else who has sent in quilts. We take pictures of every quilt that gets sent into our office. You can view some of these on our Facebook page and our Twitter. We are thankful and greatly moved by this show of support for the children and undoubtedly they will share our gratitude.
The quilts are cost free to the charity, we are supported by fantastic quilters from all around the world who as a group, or individual quilters, send us in beautiful quilts out the kindness of their heart.
This beautiful poem about what a quilt meant to one young person:
If you’re feeling lonely
And you don’t know what to do,
Wrap this quilt around you,
And love will come shining through.
You may not always be together,
But forever in your hearts
Is a love so strong, unbreakable,
It cannot come apart.
And every stitch is sewn with love,
With colours to brighten your day,
The pattern chosen carefully,
To remind you of your stay.
So take your quilt and treasure it,
Let it be your joy and pride,
Remember all the special times
With your sibling by your side.
