Springwood-Winmalee Bushfire Quilt Appeal: The Wrap Up Report

Tracey Greenaway has written a moving blog post about the distribution of more than 1000 quilts and knitted/crocheted blankets donated to families affected by the Springwood-Winmalee bushfires in October 2013.

She describes the operation of the distribution, and the deeper social and psychological impact on families and volunteers in working for their communities and knowing that the community is working for them.

Many photos of the enormous quilt collection illustrate the post.  Well worth a read
