Community Quilt Project as part of MAM2024

This Migraine Awareness Month we're inviting you to be part of a community quilt project, showing what migraine means to you on your own square. 

As the main group of people significantly debilitated by migraine are women aged between 25 and 55, and many of those are housebound or unable to work, crafting is a significant interest for our community.

This year, in keeping with the theme of ‘Stronger Together’, our members have identified that they would like to make a community quilt as part of Migraine Awareness Month, with those interested each making a square that represents what migraine feels like to them. 

It is our intention to have people make their squares throughout June, and then respected quilter Marni Franks, who is one of our valued volunteers, will put them all together in a large wall quilt that we hope to present to the federal parliament once complete.

Marni is also putting together instructions and will host online help sessions for our participants. 

Please express your interest in being part of this project using this form. There is a maximum of 150 squares that can be made for the quilt.
