I think this is a great charity and as a group I would be thankful to everyone if we could continue donations. Did you know that one metre of polar fleece(I bought the nice thick ARTIC fleece) and 1.2m of flannel makes 30pair of nursing pads.(About $25.00 or equivalent to one metre of patchwork fabric that I probably don’t really need) I think we were all a bit fragile after giving birth and I can only imagine the stress of having to worry about the dryness of your t-shirt just adds to that. If anyone is interested in helping sewing them together I have them cut out with a pattern and will bring them to the next gathering. We could do with some more nurses pouches in bright colours for the childrens’ hospital and I hope to add the pattern for the washable menstrual pads to the newsletter too. I think it is very true that as women we tend to put ourselves last on the list for “luxury” items such as bras, sanitary pads and nursing pads!
In addition members are making quilts for the following charities
