Special keepsakes

MEMBERS of the Airts quilters club have been busy creating small patchwork pieces for the baby unit at Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary.

Their handmade treasurers are placed into the incubators of premature newborns, providing them with comfort during their stay. Once the babies are discharged, they get to take the sweet keepsakes home with them.

Group leader Elizabeth Williamson acknowledged the hard work and dedication of members, which has enabled them to provide these precious items to the neonatal unit, adding: “These patchwork blankets not only offer something unique for each bed, they are also a special gift for their families to cherish.”

The group’s weekly patchwork classes are held every Tuesday 1-4 pm at 8-16 High Street, Sanquhar
