Big night for Gift Quilts at May meeting

Queanbeyan Quilters had a good meeting last night with a huge Show and Tell of Gift Quilts which have been quilted by our generous member Kay, of Kay's Quilts.

As most of you weren't there, here is a little show for you. Currently we have two priorities:
to make quilts of hospital bed size and to make many small quilts for under two year olds. The members of Queanbeyan Quilters make lots of quilts for other destinations too. One such was our raptor and native animals quilt, which was handed to a representative of Wildcare at the meeting last night. Their intention is to raffle it to help raise money for facilities and equipment for the work that they do. We are looking forward to buying some tickets in that raffle!

These  below are all quilts destined for youngsters needing some warmth and comfort.












Then there were even more quilts shown which will find homes in the community at some point.












Drainage bags are always needed by cancer patients and these ones will go to Queanbeyan Hospital.

Happy Christmas!

Queanbeyan Quilters wish all our members and readers of the blog and their families a safe, happy Christmas and a fruitful, inspirational and wonderful New Year 2017.

Christmas Dinner and Life Member recognised

This year our Christmas dinner was held at the newly refurbished Hotel Queanbeyan who gave us a room to ourselves and delivered lovely food to a lively, hungry group of quilters. We were able to keep track of the cricket live from Manuka Oval and altogether had a delightful evening.


 This was the sunset we saw from our windows, not quite as spectacular as that shown from Manuka Oval but they had several technical advantages!
Bryony presented the certificate and badge to our new life-member Joan Jackson for her significant contribution to the establishment of the club, the running of it and her teaching skills which have benefitted so many members over the years. A well-deserved honour which we were happy to witness.
