18th July

Hi Everyone, 

To those members who were able to make it to quilting today it was wonderful to see you and hear all the chatter in the room. Some of our lovely ladies have been unwell lately so we want to let you know we are thinking of you and hope to see you back at quilting when you can make it.

Krystiana for RizeUp dropped off a poster and some flyers to display at our Show today. If any visitors to our Show wish to donate directly to RizeUp there is a QR code on the flyer for them to make a donation.

Show News

We made it into the weekly eNews email sent by Hunters Hill Council for the second week in a row. Thanks Hunters Hill Council and Deb who has been working hard on our publicity.

Our Stage Sales area at our Show is always popular with our visitors. Our members have been busy making items. The quilt pictured below was made by Robyn J and has already found a new home. Suzie and her team will be on hand to help you for the 3 days of our Show.


Not to be outdone our Wagga area with Grace and Jenny has also had a couple of sales of our fabulous Waggas. There will be over 30 Waggas to tempt you to purchase and a stitching area for you to sit and stitch and have a chat. If you can’t sew don’t worry we are more than 
happy to help and show you how.

Narelle is finalising the Cafe menu and has a wonderful team of ladies ready to help out and to make the Cafe run smoothly for the entirety of the Show. There will be tea, coffee, sandwiches, mouth watering cakes, slices, tasting plates and scones jam and cream for purchase.

Kathy from Material Obsession will have a stall at our Show. Our 2 Raffle quilts have been hanging at Material Obsession for the last couple of weeks and the ticket sales have been pleasing.

šŸ§µ Don’t forget to return your sold Raffle Tickets stubs and money to Marie K.

11th July

Hi Everyone,

Today was a day of catching up with each other owing to school holidays we were smaller in number. 
I was able to distribute to those who were present a hard copy of the HHQ 2024 Show Guide for Members it will also be emailed (please check your spam box) to all members and posted on our WhatsApp - HHQ Show and Tell. It is important that everyone reads the Show Guide so we are all informed and have no misunderstandings on what is expected from our members for the smooth running of the show.

Show News
We made it into the the weekly eNews email sent by Hunters Hill Council and the July QuiltNSW Newsletter.

The photos below are 3 hand pieced and hand quilted quilts that will be for sale at the show from Stage Sales and some fabric bins that balance off the side of your sewing table which can easily detach for convenient emptying. Each bin is unique owing to the different types of timber used as the counterbalance.



Volunteers are required to help out at the Show so add your name to the rosters which are available at quilting or send an email to Sandy with your availability on it.

šŸ§µ Next Show Committee Meeting will be 18th July.
šŸ§µ Don’t forget to return your sold Raffle Tickets and money.
