About a dozen members of the High Prairie Quilt Guild gathered at St. Paul’s Roman Catholic Church Hall in High Prairie March 18 to make about 40 twin-size (60 x 80-inch) quilts for local Ukrainian families. The quilt size is designed for children 12-18 years-old. Any extra quilts will be forwarded to Ukrainian Catholic Social Services in Edmonton for dispersal. They partner with Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep. The guild has members from around the region including Slave Lake, and Smoky River. They are active in choosing a charity, then gathering as a group to enjoy their passion and support a good cause. Any quilts not completed that day were finished by guild members on their own time.
