All hung and ready

On Thursday, over 135 quilts were received between 10.00am - 12 noon by our committee receiving team of Vicki and Tania.  At this stage the quilts were checked for labels and correct size rod pockets.  All details were check referenced and logged.  All entrants received a receipt and free entry ticket.
Sometimes an entrant can be concerned while handing over their quilts, but be assured we take extreme care with each and every quilt entrusted to us and treat them like the precious cargo that they are.

After a quick lunch the magic of creating a Quilt Show happens.  Eager volunteers arrive, most from previous years, now knowing the procedures.  First time volunteers are always welcome.

We are guided by Chris with the master plan in hand. Quilts have rods slipped through their rod pockets and are hoisted to the top of the poles.  Colours and designs are starting to consume the hall as each row is completed.  At this stage many oohs and aahs are heard as the hangers see for the first time some beautiful work unfolding before them.

Bygone Beautys Display

Maurice Cooper, from Bygone Beauty's of Leura,  has a collection of his blue and white tea pots on display. Maurice very generously gives the committee vouchers to be handed out to the first 1,000 visitors .  This voucher entitles you to enjoy a devonshire tea for two, pay for one at his Leura Tea House.  The committee thank Maurice very much for his ongoing support of the Springwood Community Quilt Show.

    Hope to see lots of readers there.
