 Safe Harbour Quilts

 As a group, KVQG has donated 10 quilts for the beds at Safe Harbour,  a transitional place for young people to stay while getting their lives on track in Saint John.  Many thanks to our members who gave wholeheartedly of their time and talents and also money, to make sure these youth have a touch of something made with love to make them feel at home.  They are welcome to take these quilts with them when they leave and we will replace them.  .   


A big Thank You to the Men of St. Mark's for a delicious Christmas Supper.  We had a big turnout and a lovely assortment of  Emma's Trees which will be donated to our local Senior's.  We also received lovely 12-1/2 inch blocks for our Raffle Quilt.

Here are some pictures....
