On the home straight

Well the raffle quilt is finished and looks fantastic. It will begin its journey around the shops in early January so keep an eye out for it and your chance to buy a ticket.
The committee is well on its way to organising all the behind-the-scenes tasks that go into running a successful show such as designing a logo for all our advertising, new banners for signage, new tables for the Quilt Show Cafe and even calico shopping bags with the show logo on them which will be for sale over the weekend of the show.
The big news is that we have been given a BERNINA SEWING MACHINE!!! to use as a prize! Can you believe it - we are so grateful to Bernina and The Stitching Post in Katoomba for their generosity. Not sure yet what the prize will be for but it really is exciting to have this as a draw card.
As our guest quilter this year we have Karen Cunningham and all her beautiful mostly hand-pieced quilts. Karen is a very well known Blue Mountains quilter and her display is sure to impress everyone. She will be supported by the delightful Isobel Lancashire, one of the founding members of the NSW Quilters Guild who will be on stage over the weekend demonstrating her expertise at hand quilting.
You may have noticed on the sidebar we have a follower from Norway! Bjorg is a friend of Petal's and is keeping an eye in our progress from afar. Wouldn't it be great if you could join us at the show Bjorg. It would be lovely to have more followers - just follow the prompts - it's easy.
