Growing up in the 1940’s/50’s, patchwork quilts and rag rugs were essential household items in our home. Every scrap of fabric was recycled to add warmth and comfort under our feet or on our beds.
“I remember that dress, it was my most favourite!” “This was a scarf that Granny used to wear!” Such wonderful memories generated from scraps of fabric.
Although we no longer need these things for their original purpose, what a great way to pass on memories of childhood or loved ones! Let’s do our bit to keep alive those skills that helped to make homes brighter in days of yore.
If you know someone who would love a memory quilt or cushion, or even a collage to hang on the wall, get in touch with Jenny or me and we can help you design your very own special gift. See About page for details of how to contact us.
