Creating quilts for young people leaving care

Posted onPosted on 11th May

Michelle Baker, owner of Crafty Betty, Newark, has been appointed Nottinghamshire coordinator for the Quilts for Care Leavers project.

Michelle has been involved with the charity for a few years.

She explained that beautiful handmade quilts are made throughout the year and presented at Christmas time to those young people leaving care and starting out on their own independent lives as an adult.

“I look forward to working with the rest of the team across the country,” she said.
