Mountain Magic's Journey

On Friday 4th February 2011 it was lovely to call in and see Michelle Marvig at The Patchwork Heart in Penrith. Michelle's store is the first in a long line of venues to display and sell tickets for the show's raffle quilt. Pictured is Kim Harris very obligingly bringing down the quilt. The Patchwork Heart will continue to sell tickets on our behalf, just ask when in the store.

The next stage of the journey for 'Mountain Magic' will be at Annie Downes' delightful shop in Bathurst. Starting on Monday 7th February.

Funds raised with our raffle quilt this year along with the show's profit will support The Rural Fire Service to purchase a mini bus to use in our mountains region. Having a mini bus will mean not only will they be able to fit more volunteers on -board but also they won't be searching for as many drivers. Maurice Cooper OAM will receive our donation on behalf of the R.F.S after the show and will be directly responsible for the bus purchase. Another part of the funds raised go to the P & C of Springwood High School for upgrading of the School hall in particular the kitchen and foyer facilities. The hospitality faculty will also receive a donation .


  1. Can't wait to buy some tickets and doesn't Kim look lovely!
    Well done Vicki for the latest post.

  2. It's great the raffle quilt gets to travel so more people have the chance to see it. A mini bus will be so valuable to the community in times of emergency. Mother Nature has shown us recently all too clearly that you never know what's in store.


We always appreciate you taking the time to comment.
