On Friday April 6, 2018 the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team players and staff were on their way to a play-off game when their team bus was in a collision with a semi-truck trailer in rural Saskatchewan. The incident and aftermath has rocked the province and communities across Canada.
The local quilters of Humboldt and Melfort will be making a player’s quilt for each of the 29 players/staff or families of players/staff that were on the bus.The call for quilts comes for the others impacted by the events. Including: Billet families, First Responders, EMT, RCMP, Fire, Broncos Staff and Board members, and many others impacted in the communities of Humboldt and Tisdale.
The current estimate is that they will need 200 quilts.
Quilters are encouraged to make blocks, quilt tops, or finished quilts.
