Our ladies have also taken on another challenge put forward by one of our members to create a quilt named the Honour Quilt.  The quilt consists of 49 blocks with each block named in memory of a local fallen soldier listed on the local memorials.  

These quilts will be on display at this years quilt show along with many other quilts made by our members, every year we average approx. 100 quilts.

Our Quilt Raffle will feature a First and Second Prize.  With the winner choosing the quilt they prefer.  There will also be door prizes, our trade table and shop tables - Simpson and Scarlett, Canterbury Quilts and Creature Crafts.  You will also have the option to vote on both the challenge quilts and those quilts we have on display.

As we do every year we will have a stage display, this years display will depict the home front - to tie in with our Colours of War theme.

Once again the ladies will have home baked goodies available for morning and afternoon tea along with a variety of options for lunch.
