Uniting Threads – Quilts for Bendigo and beyond
What we do
Each year we make up to 90 lap size quilts.
We have donated quilts to various organisations including:
Aged Care Organisations
Youth and Children’s Services
We also hold a Christmas Stall and donate the majority of the proceeds to the Christmas Bowl (an international aid program of the National Council of Churches in Australia).
Frequently Asked Questions

Where do you get your materials?
About 95 percent of our fabrics are donated. We try and use only 100% cotton fabrics in our quilts.

Uniting Threads is open to anyone who would love to make quilts for charity. The group is auspiced by St Andrew’s Uniting Church.
