It was a quieter day at HHQ this week as a number of members took the opportunity to visit the Sydney Craft and Quilt Show at Darling Harbour.
Robyn J. brought in some lemons from her garden for us all to share. Susan H. organised morning tea for us by herself and did a wonderful job. Her sandwiches especially are always so delicious!
Thank you Susan.
I have started to distribute the Raffle Tickets for our members to sell. I also have Opening Night tickets for sale.
"Booth Space" at the Show:
On Friday we were fortunate to be awarded a space at the QuiltNSW and Craft show. This enables us to display some of our quilts and chat to people about our group. Thank you to all those who came to help. We were able to speak to many people as they walked past us browsing the 400 quilts on display.
It was gratifying to hear many ladies say how much they enjoyed our show and were looking forward to it this year.
We sold $207 worth of Raffle Tickets too!
There was a lot of interest in our display of 'Fiddle or Sensory mats'. A number of women stopped to chat about them and to read the information that Iris had attached to them.
Grace also made sure we did not waste time while we were there! She had us all making little birds for another Wagga. It was such fun. We also took turns to look at the quilts and visit the stores. Of course we all bought something.
Helena F. won third place for her beautiful Hand Appliqued quilt. Congratulations Helena.
Show and Tell:
Sandra made this Baby Quilt for Westmead. Such cute owls.
The top two Baby quilts above are from Helen K. Helen used some of the Orphan Blocks from our retreat as well some fabric that was donated to us.
The next two photos show the back and front of a Baby quilt from Beryl R. In fact Beryl sewed the final stitch while I was talking. Hot off the Press!
Here is a photo of the quilt that Grace entered into the QuiltNSW Show. Lovely colours and lots of quilting detail.
The three photos above are of our 'booth' at the show. It was eye catching and attracted a lot of attention.
Another Wagga ready for sale at our show.
Until next time .....
