Our Quilt In was a wonderful success

Our Quilt In was a wonderful success with over 80 ladies in attendance.  We managed to raise a good amount of money for the Victorian Cancer Council.

The guest speakers were very well received with wonderful presentations from both of them with intriguing show and tell from both speakers.  As a result it will be interesting to see if our members dip their toes into Modern Quilt techniques and  try experimenting with a variety of ethnic fabrics.
Our raffle quilt proved to be very popular with plenty of tickets sold.

The traders did very well with plenty of interest in their stock.

Our Mug Rug challenge created plenty of interest, there were plenty of creative entries making the choice hard for our viewers.  Our first and second place winners demonstrated the variety in entries.

Joan won with this wonderful mug rug

Fay came Second with a modern entry

As usual our morning and afternoon tea went down a treat with all in attendance.

Thank you to the committee for the wonderful efforts of the committee prior to the Quilt In and on the day of the Quilt In.  Thank you also to all the help the committee received from the members in set up and on the day it was very much appreciated.
