Cornwater Club Shop Volunteer, Tordis Lyall, has used her creative talents to transform pieces of donated material into a beautiful double quilt and raise funds for the Cornwater Club.    The raffle of the quilt raised £310 and was won by Hazel Saddington from Newark.

Tordis, a keen quilter, decided to make the quilt after seeing how many pieces of material are donated to the Cornwater Club Charity Shop, in Mansfield. It took six months to make and is predominantly stitched by hand.  Said Tordis “By using the materials in this way it not only gives them a new lease of life but it demonstrates how recycled materials can be used to create something useful and beautiful.  I really enjoyed making the quilt and am happy it raised so much money for the old people in our community”

Happy winner, Hazel Saddington said she was absolutely delighted and it had given her inspiration to try to make a quilt of her own.
