A big thank you to everyone for helping with the setup and take down and running of our show. All went smoothly.
Thank you to our Judge, Roseanna Gallo OAM who chose the winning quilts, guided expertly by Coleen. It is difficult choosing from such a wonderful display.
I received many nice comments about the quilts, the layout and of course the scones. Who doesn't love a scone with jam and cream.
The weekend was a lot of hard work but well worth the effort. 703 guests came. Kathy remarked that everyone leaving had a smile on their face!
The kitchen is always a busy area. Hats off to Narelle and Ros and those who worked in the kitchen, including Kerry, the best sandwich organiser ever!
Sue managed to simplify the job of picking up and dropping back the frames. Hiring a GoGet van worked like a charm. The lighting people were great as well.
Grace sold many Waggas and Wagga kits. The stitching area was welcome and a respite often for tired legs.
Suzie's stage sales were spectacular. We almost sold out on the first day. Thank you to Susan H. also who was the perfect partner on the stage.
So many to thank: Jonquil and Robyn raffle sales; Iris Publicity and History section, the printing, tags for quilts, certificates etc., Elva and her husband for the drinks stand; Akiko for providing change for door sales etc as well as working in the kitchen; the Museum staff for volunteering to open the Museum so we could view our Bicentenary quilt; and of course Kathy and her generous support; Husbands and family members; the show committee.
Our raffle quilts were won by two ladies who were excited and happy to receive them. The first one chose the black and white "Splashes of Colour". She is also a great friend of Laurel. The second lady was just thinking where she could put the Traditional Quilt, "Gentle Harmony" when Alison called to tell her she had won it. Two very happy winners.
We will distribute profit from the show between our two Charities - Days for Girls and The Womens' Shelter at Hornsby. Both speakers from these two groups spoke eloquently. We are very pleased that we can give these worthwhile charities a helping hand.
