The Women Helping Others (W.H.O.) Club just wrapped up another season, coming only 27 quilts shorts of 1000! Next year, the W.H.O. Club plans on breaking the thousand mark!

Fifty-nine people joined the W.H.O. club at the Coronach Drop In Centre for dessert and coffee on the afternoon of April 25.

The club had 36 quilts, the fruits of their 2011-12 season, on display for their guests to see.  The quilts were a variety of fabrics, patterns and different quilting techniques.

The club sold tickets for a choice of quilts, with two winners: Jim Nelson and Ruth Lloyd of Nova Scotia.

The door prize of two cushions was won by Maxine Thurlow.

Cushion raffle draws were won by: Mable Shain, Maxine Thurlow, Kathleen Elder and Rylee Martin.

A rug, made by Helen Foley, was won by Mable Shain.

The club plans to donate quilts to the Coronach Health Centre, Regina Rescue, Phoenix House, Moose Jaw Housing, Transition House in Moose Jaw,  Red Cross and the Salvation Army.

The club also puts quilts on display in the Health Centre Show Case and keeps a few in case of community need.

The club breaks for the summer months and will meet again in the fall to begin work on breaking the 1000 mark!
