NOT many quilt groups can claim to be a patch on these talented seamstresses.

The Foggy Furze Quilters have moved into a new home at Seaton Carew Social Club after its previous base at Foggy Furze Library in Hartlepool shut.

They are putting the finishing touches to this great patch quilt.

The kind-hearted group is to raffle it off at an up coming craft fair to raise money for the Hartlepool and District Hospice.

Group member Lorna Scott said: “A friend of ours who used to be in the group, but is ill at the moment, gave us a lot of the material.

“She made a lot of the rosettes and we have finished off the quilt. It has been a joint effort and has taken about a year.

“When you start you never know how it is going to look when you are finished. We are pleased with how it has turned out and hope it does well in the raffle and that the event will be well supported by people.”

It will be offered as a prize at a Christmas crafts fair at the Borough Hall on the Headland on Sunday, November 27.

The group will also display some festive patchwork at the event as well.

Other charities will also be there such as the Alzheimer’s Society and RNLI.

The quilt group has around 28 members and meets at Seaton Carew Social Club, Station Lane on Mondays between 2pm and 4pm.
