DRHC Dialysis Unit Receives Quilts For Clients

     The Dauphin/area Crocus Quilter’s Guild was very happy to be able to recently present 24 quilts to the DRHC Dialysis Unit. Each client on dialysis received a quilt to take home to snuggle up in and keep warm. 

     This was the first time Dauphin’s Dialysis Unit was provided with quilts from the Guild and they hope to continue to provide one to each new client as they start their treatment in Dauphin.

     As a group of quilters (currently over 50 strong), members believe in giving back to their community. Some other quilts have went to community members that have dealt with catastrophic illness, house fires, or to groups like the Crisis Centre, Baby First Program, Ronald McDonald House and Quilts of Valor.

      Through workshops, the group teaches quilting to new members to carry on this wonderful work. They hold a quilt show and raffle a quilt to raise funds for the purchase of materials.  Their next show is set for September 2020, when the Club will celebrate its 35th Anniversary!
