The Norwood Needles, Norwood’s quilting group, was awarded the “Volunteer of the Year” prize at the Society’s meeting in November. This group of women from the Norwood area has been responsible for designing, cutting, sewing, assembling and raffling full size quilts each year for more than twenty years in order to benefit the NAHS. Over the years, the membership of the Norwood Needles has consisted of about 30 members as new residents have come into the area and others have departed, and while not everyone is involved in sewing, all are involved in raffle ticket sales. Since 1996 the Norwood Needles have provided over $30,000 in proceeds from ticket sales in support of the NAHS. Congratulations Norwood Needles!
