Wairarapa Quilters Guild

The Quilters Guild make and provide chest protector cushions at no cost to us.  Many thanks Ladies!

The cushions are carefully made to an extremely high standard and are designed to protect the chest area of a patient who has undergone heart surgery.

Also keep the cushion handy for when you cough or sneeze.
