Exhibition Opening night

Friday night was the official opening of our exhibition and it was well attended. Our Mayor, Peter Blackmore and his wife, Robyn; our local member Robyn Parker and Margaret Sivyer OAM were all in attendance as well as many members, their family and friends.

Our guest speaker was Margaret Rowe who traveled from Melbourne to open our exhibition and talk about her journey as an author of some historically based novels she has written about a group of quilters. Her books have inspired challenges within our group and it was great to be able to show them off to her! This is Margaret with her Maria quilt next to our display of our members' Maria and Elizabeth challenge quilts.

Here's Margaret with our President, Janelle:

Our hard working kitchen staff who have been cooking up a storm of delicious home made goodies for morning and afternoon tea (scones to die for) and lunch of freshly made sandwiches!
