A group of Cobar sewers have gathered together out of the generosity of their hearts to make quilts for those in town who have suffered from some type of loss or tragedy.
Cobar Quilt Shop owner Colleen Flynn said the group isn’t keen to advertise what they do, but recently a member of their group went above and beyond to make sure a local family was a little bit more comfortable for Christmas.
Mrs Flynn said she really wanted to acknowledge the efforts of one of the quilting group, Ana Kok.
She said Ana “rose to the plate” when several of those in the group were away.
“On this particular occasion because it was Christmas there was lots of people away and she just said “yup, no worries I’ll jump in and do it”,” Mrs Flynn said.
Ana made a quilt for a family, donated another and also organised to raffle a third quilt.
Mrs Flynn said the recipient family said they would however be pleased to take the third quilt rather than the money so they could keep it as a memory of the generosity of the people of Cobar.
Another of the quilters, Sarah Cryer, also made a fourth quilt, which meant to whole family was a little bit more comfortable for Christmas.
