Another successful sales table was held under the supervision of Elaine with lots of wonderful treasures to purchase. These included jams, lovely muffins baked by Marion, plants and some adorable soft toys such as a pair of 'mother/daughter' chickens made by Claire.

It has been a very busy month for Sunshine Linus with a static display needing to be organised for the Nambour Show (a big thank you to Kaye, Marion and Sharon for coordinating this). Three guest visitors also attended Monday's meeting.
Our first visitor was Sergeant Sandy Atkinson from the Sunshine Coast Crime Prevention Unit at Maroochydore. Sandy was amazed at the range and quality of the items she saw on the distribution tables. Sunshine Linus donate many items to a number of police stations on the Sunshine Coast. Of course the activity bags for children caught up in domestic violence situations are a regular donation.

Our second set of visitors were Lewis and Pam Minary from the Suncoast Social Dancers. Pam is the Vice President and Lewis the Treasurer. Pam saw the Sunshine Linus article in the May 6th issue of the My Weekly Preview magazine and brought it to the attention of the dancing group because they are always looking for local volunteer groups and charities to support. The Suncoast Social Dancers very generously donated $1000 to Sunshine Linus!

Once again the sales table was overflowing with goods for sale. Thank you to everyone who has donated items and to Elaine for her efforts setting the table up as it has become a good source of income for Sunshine Linus.
Elaine put her Brother sewing machine to good use embroidering these lovely coasters and hand towels for the sales table.

The raffle quilt for the next two months was donated by Judie B. Judie calls it her 'Stitch Library quilt' and you can see why when you take a closer look at the quilting! Remember to purchase your tickets at the next meeting if you haven't already done so!
And now for some 'Show and Tell'.......
Jan has been collecting Kanyini bears from the knitters amongst Sunshine Linus members and friends, enough to fill her bed! They are to be delivered to Buderim Private hospital.
Bev S knitted this beautiful, double breasted toddler's jacket and beanie.
Gabrielle delivered an assortment of items including a colorful knitted rug that had 'touchy feely' threads on the back.
The 'Touchy Feely' team have been hard at work again creating a range of creative and interesting items.
|Lea made these balls and blockenspeils.|
|Beany made a selection of doodads.|
|Rosemary made these gorgeous twiddle muffs.|
|The insides were just as interesting.|
|More delightful 'touchy feely' cubes.|
The 'Sewing Team' have been just as productive. Lisa delivered a number of hospital gowns, some of which were made during the last Activity Day.
- Due to the current Covid-19 situation, Activity Day for July has been cancelled.
- The next meeting will be Monday 26th July. Don't forget to book a time slot!
- Don't forget there will be a sales table and raffle quilt.
