Lecture: Relief Sale Quilts

Duration: 1 hour
Many people have heard of Mennonite Relief Sales, but don't know what they are. The annual Relief Sale in New Hamburg, Ontario, features the largest quilt auction in Canada - with 100% of the proceeds donated to worldwide relief efforts.

Over the years, Renske has been inspired by the enthusiasm of both the women in her church and her local quilting guild, to coordinate a number of unique group quilts, which were ultimately donated to the Relief Sale. Each one was an adventure!

In this slide show presentation, Renske talks about her personal experiences with the Ontario Mennonite Relief Sale and the group quilts she has orchestrated.
