The artwork for our new June market is here!
Once again, we are truly grateful to the very talented Susan Fitzgerald of Spin Spin for her time and amazing designs.
Susan is a local maker and creative who designs the most stunning textiles. She also creates ceramic pieces, sews, blogs, screen-prints and produces dynamic graphic design work for people like us!
We have a rather fitting winter colour palette for Melbourne here, so rug up MMM-ers and come visit us on Saturday June 18!

Our support of the Very Snuggly Quilt program

The Very Snuggly Quilt Program is an initiative started in 2004 to make and deliver patchwork quilts to children and teenage patients at The Royal Children’s Hospital.

On the second Tuesday of every month, volunteers from The Wrapped In Love Auxiliary distributes approximately 200 quilts to patients. The quilts are a gift to the child to take home and quickly become a treasured possession of the child and many children insist that this quilt is taken on each trip back to hospital. It is hoped that these quilts will provide some extra warmth and comfort at a difficult time.

The Very Snuggly Quilt together with Victorian Quilters brings volunteers together at quilt making workshops throughout Victoria. All supplies, time and quilts are donated from various businesses, quilting guilds, sewing groups and individuals.

MMM would like to thank our visitors to the market in September and November last year who generously donated $145.00 to the Very Snuggly Quilt Program. MMM are pleased to have matched this donation and presented a cheque to Josephine Kelly for $290.00. Josephine is a member of The Very Snuggly quilts and is also a Wrapped In Love Auxiliary member. Josephine will be using these funds to purchase fabric and other supplies for an upcoming Inner West quilt making workshop on Friday 12 February, 2016.

If you are interested in attending this workshop please contact Josephine Kelly

If you would like to make and donate a quilt for The Very Snuggle Quilt Program please see below requirements.
