Almost Ready

Hi Everyone,

We are busy with last minute details for our Show. There are still spots left on the Roster Sheet so if you haven't yet put your name down please do so.

The two quilts we are raffling this year are spectacular so keep selling the tickets. The traditional quilt is called 'Gentle Harmony' and the contemporary one 'Splashes of Colour'.

Things to BUY at the Show:

Suzie L. and her team have made amazing and wonderful items for sale. There are plenty of quilts of various sizes to choose from as well as 'must buy' items. You will find it hard to choose!

Narelle and Ros offer High Teas, sandwiches, cakes and slices as well as tea and coffee from the kitchen. All absolutely yummy!

Bicentennial Quilt:

On Wednesday evening some of us were at the Town Hall for the launch of our Bicentennial Quilt. It is now hanging in the museum. It attracted a lot of attention and looks amazing close up.

We are grateful to Hunters Hill Council for their support and enthusiasm regarding the quilt. Local residents were kept busy identifying the various houses, boats etc. depicted on the quilt.

The museum will be open for us on Opening Night but we will rely on museum staff volunteers for the rest of the weekend. We are hoping it will become a permanent display at the museum.

Baby quilts:

We have a large number of baby quilts ready for donation. Unfortunately Westmead has no requirements at the moment and RPA has not returned for more.

We will therefore switch to making cot size quilts that Robyn Jnst. can distribute. The best size is 40" x 50". There are many lovely designs available which gives us more scope to make some great quilts.

Large single bed quilts can also be donated. We do need to find other outlets though.

Show and Tell:
