Warm Blankets For Everyone is a non for profit organisation that began in 2020 from the brilliant idea of two individuals, Sue Bardsley and Tonee Holley Knowles providing blankets for those in need.


During the first wave of Covid, Quirky Quilters, who make 'Wrap with Love' quilts, called out for more fabric, due to the increase in need at the women's refuges. Tonee and Sue, members of this group, sent an email out to 800 U3A Eastlake members, calling for donations of fabric.


An avalanche resulted!


20 big black bags, plus two full rolls of fabric, were sorted 'into relevant piles' suitable for various sewing needs. During the sorting process, it was realized that most of the waste fabric would not be suitable for patchwork. This was the catalyst for making blankets for the homeless or those in need.  During those first few months of Covid, the was divided with Sue holding workshops using long tables and sewing machines and with Tonee being responsible for discovering the programs in the community that needed support. 


Warm Blankets For Everyone has now become incorporated since November 2020 and hasa board of 8 members looking after 70 volunteers, distributing blankets to over 25 charities.

Words from a happy customer...

"I just wanted to say a BIG thank you for the wonderful colourful blankets, doonas, and covers. The timing was perfect as we have not been able to buy single doonas easily of late, and from what I understand from Mel who looks after the linen, your "goodies" will be going out to the families who need them very quickly. I love that the printed fabrics are bright and colourful with a lot of the prints relating to young children."
