More Info →Quilts for the community by Rose City Quilters

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Palmerston North City Council received 105 handmade quilts from the Rose City Quilters to distribute to families in the area.

Rose City Quilters have been making quilts and storing them for distribution during emergencies. After the Christchurch earthquake, they sent over 500 quilts to families affected. They also provided these beautiful quilts to families in need during the big Manawatū flood a few years back.

Four local welfare organisations are being given a share of the quilts to distribute: Te Roopu Whakaruruhau o Nga Wahine Maori, Palmerston North Women’s Refuge, Royal New Zealand Plunket Society Palmerston North, and MASH Trust.
