30th May

Hi Everyone,

We are so fortunate to live in this amazing city and to have such a beautiful harbour. We see inspiration all around us and Sydney does not disappoint with running of Vivid 2024.

Today at quilting we had a guest Lynne Spears who belongs to the Zonta Club of North Sydney. Zonta is a world wide organisation that believes in building a better world for women and girls. They do this by raising funds to support women who are rebuilding their lives after fleeing domestic violence or a misplaced person from another country. The funds raised are used to encourage women to gain skills by attending TAFE or to give the funds to a women’s shelter. They also hold sewing days to make breast pillows for women who have had breast surgery, make birthing kits to be sent to remote areas in Australia and overseas and help support Days for Girls.

We were able to help the Zonta Club of North Sydney by donating two quilts to be raffled to raise funds.
