Victoria's Quilts Canada (VQC) provides handmade quilts to people with cancer in Canada. By providing these quilts, we hope to bring physical comfort to those dealing with cancer as well as spiritual comfort in knowing that they are not alone in their struggle. Our organization now comprises over 1,100 volunteers in 23 communities across Canada, including Ottawa. The quilts we provide are made by individual quilters who work independently or in groups in a team setting similar to the quilting bees of times past. Over the past 14 years, we have delivered more than 42,000 quilts to people with cancer across the country. We now make and distribute over 400 quilts per month.
The Okotoks Branch of Victoria's Quilts Canada was established in 2003 and meets twice a month in the spacious classroom provided by Rumpled Quilt Skins. The members of this Branch make nearly 300 quilts a year for delivery to communities south of Calgary as well as Manitoba.
