My research into the unpaid production of supplies and comforts by Canadian women and children during the Second World War is ongoing. The purpose of this blog is to share some of the information I am finding as I delve deep into primary sources – from newspapers and periodicals of the day, to archives of the Federated Women’s Institutes and Imperial Order Daughters of the Empire (IODE), letters and scrapbooks, and to the quilts themselves. The information shared here is by no means comprehensive, and it is hard to conclude any hard facts about this operation, because so much of this story is still untold.  So, as I uncover new information, the details of these posts may change. If you see anything posted here which may not be accurate or to which you could add more information, please do not hesitate to contact me.
