Thank you to everyone who bought raffle tickets over the past few months, your eagerness to do so was a marvellous thank you to all who were involved in making the quilt and selling tickets for hour after hour at Riverside Plaza, Spotlight, the Kingston Bus Depot Markets and at Canberra Quilters meetings. It was lovely talking to people about the quilts and how they were done.
This year we instituted a new feature, the Presentation. At this, the winners of the Viewers Choice and the Raffle were announced. The quilts were still up, some of the public were there to listen, all the Members who could attend were there and we were all keyed up ready for the final lap.
Tony very kindly drew the winning raffle tickets for Bryony to announce and for Narell to describe the prizes from our very generous sponsors:
1st Prize Nightingale, the red and white quilt made by members of Queanbeyan Quilters and quilting donated by Kay's Quilts, was won by Trish Tritschler from Bungendore, NSW.
2nd Prize Bali Crossing, the colourful batik quilt made by members of Queanbeyan Quilters and quilting donated by Kay's Quilts, was won by Karen Travis from Griffith, ACT.
3rd Prize Brother Innov-is NV210 Quilters Edition sewing maching, donated by Canberra Sewing at 26 Colbee Court, Phillip, ACT, was won by Christine Barnicoat from Ngunnawal, ACT.
