Ponoka volunteers put many hours into the creation of handmade quilts intended for kids who need them this holiday season.
Prairie Points Quilt Shop, along with volunteers with Ponoka Pin Pals — a sewing group that holds charity quilting days — spent some time putting 25 kid-themed quilts together. These quilts are being donated to Ponoka Victim Services.
The groups held a sewing day at the Ponoka Elks building to put all of the blankets together. One lady used her longarm sewing machine to quilt six blankets, said Prairie Points owner Lynn Burdett.
She said it has always been a joy for her to donate quilts for a good cause.
The blankets were donated Wednesday, Dec. 9 at Burdett’s shop in downtown Ponoka.
