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.
