Wrapping It Up!

In the past few days we have had an enormous number of volunteers assisting in running the quilt show. Without these fabulous people the quilt show would not happen. Some people gave a few hours
 of their time while others only went home to sleep. Thankyou so much for your help and support. Thanks also Mathew for sleeping over and minding the quilts.

Every day of the show, viewers are invited to vote for their favourite quilt. This year  Friday's viewers choice was awarded to Laurelle Krebs for the Randwick Applique quilt.

On Saturday the viewers choice was awarded to Jeanette Mc Kechnie.
Sunday's viewers choice was awarded to Racheldaisy for Pocket Full of Posies.

Volunteers worked tirelessly to pack up the show soon after the prizegiving.
Everyone has a job at the end of the day!

Things that go up usually have to come down. The volunteers do a good job at taking things down.

A final thankyou to our guest quilter, Ann Langley. Ann and Isobel entertained visitors on the stage all weekend and explained the finer points of quilting techniques.
We have just about wrapped up for another year and committee members are going home to think about next year's raffle quilt!!!!!
