The Heartland Quilters donated another 28 quilts to Siloam Mission this last week.
This group of quilters from the Steinbach area gets together and make quilts for several different charities. One of those charities is Siloam Mission. Since 1987, Siloam Mission has provided meals, clothing, and hope services to Winnipeg's poor and homeless community.
Heartland Quilters has made 155 quilts since September; approximately 50 of those are for Siloam. Spokesperson Doris Toews says it is a wonderful feeling to be able to provide quilts for the poor and homeless.
Toews refers to her group as artists that work with fabric. And she says a lot of that fabric has been donated by the community.
The Heartland Quilters became incorporated in 2013, but by then the group had already been quilting together for five years. They work out of the Quilters Playhouse, located east of Steinbach.
