Community Day - October 5

Hi Everyone,

Today was Community Day and our group was busy either on sewing machines, pinning quilts or hand quilting. Grace had her Wagga Wizards (Jenny & Kerry) sorting material and making up kit packs. 
Happy birthday to our members who celebrate their birthday in October. Wishing you many happy returns for your special day. 🎂
The Red group finished a Community quilt and it is now ready to find a forever home.
