KRAZY Kwiltz, an organisation that has been making quilts since 2001, is calling on volunteers to lend a helping hand in keeping those less fortunate warm.

The non-profit organisation comprises women who volunteer their services in the Methodist Church hall, in Kloof to sew for needy children.

Speaking to the Hillcrest Fever, the project co-ordinator, Denise Hadlow, said their mission is to get material that would normally be wasted or thrown away and turn it into warm, cheerful, crazy patchwork quilts.

“We want to give them something new and unique made especially for them,” she said.

Hadlow said the need for quilts gets greater each year and the organisation needs additional volunteers to make them for 2016.

“We are in need of sewers to join us because many of our groups have left for various reasons.

“We meet from 9am to 12pm on the second, fourth and fifth Tuesday morning of every month in the church hall,” said Hadlow.

“All we need are interested women who can sew a seam. We will show them how easy it is to make a colourful quilt out of next to nothing.

“It is a friendly social morning that benefits those who have very little to call their own.”

One can also feel the joy of giving back to the community she said.

“We can all give back in whichever way we want, and it is the end result that puts a smile on my face,” she said.

“Come and experience this joy and delight for yourselves. It’s the best feeling in the world to know you changed someone’s life for the better.”
