The Barriere Community Quilters are continually working on comfort and community quilts of all sizes for all ages.  Comfort quilts are donated to people with compromised health, and community quilts are donated to those in need.  The guild has received a grant for $500 from the North Thompson Communities Foundation, which will be used to buy supplies for this project.

The Quilters thanked the Foundation for their support, as well as Katja’s Quilt Shoppe for their kindness and generosity towards the project.

“With these funds and help, our guild has been able to put together another 23 tops, backing, and labels – all ready for quilting,” said Judy Davis, “Thank you.”
