These photos give some glimpses of the event:
and visitors enjoyed tea and scones on the day.
The space became quite crowded with bus loads of fellow quilters travelling from afar to join us.
The stage was adorned by several quilts which had been set aside to give to organisations requesting raffle quilts and these have now been distributed.
The rich hues of Margaret's Jenny Beyer quilt was a favourite in the group of member's quilts on display.
A small group of traders supported our Open Day.member Dee's Blockopedia stall.
Two specialist groups had a small display area:
the premmie baby specialists
and Claire's storybook quilts.
Many visitors were interested in the special needs items displayed by Leone and Bonnie, such as were recently donated to Abel Care.
It can be understood why out SHOW and TELL for August was much smaller than usual. However, some colourful rugs were on show, both knitted and crocheted, courtesy of Peregian Craft Group.
Linus was visited by two ladies representing Wishlist and two from Katie Rose Cottage, a hospice at Doonan. Wishlist is a charity set up to guide the community in raising funds and products for Sunshine Coast hospitals. Katie Rose Cottage is working towards providing four beds in a home style environment for palliative care purposes. Sunshine Linus has committed to supporting both these organisations in the future.
Liz has kept her grandchildren busy making simple pieced tops.
Knitted goods included smart slippers
and a shawl for aged care.
Colourful platypuses and hand puppets were displayed by Kay.
Claire explained to new members the structure and purpose of a silly sac.
Our regular contributors Anne and Glorianne found time to create one more delightful quilt each this month, despite their work at the door on Open Day.
Some of those chenille pieces mentioned last month appeared as a bright quilt top,
and president Kay challenged members to produce a more complex marble maze and to turn this centre panel into a quilt.
Look forward to seeing the results of these next month as our members never shirk a challenge to create something interesting for the needy.
Next meeting is Monday, 25th September at 9.30am.
