COMMUNITY QUILTS with Gail
The bazaar and associated sales in September were very successful events for Community Quilts. $2500 was raised from the pre-bazaar lockup sale, sale of Suffolk Puff quilt, raffle of Carla’s 30th quilt and sales on sewing day and sewing night. CQ will purchase 14 rolls of wadding with this money. I would like to publicly express my gratitude and thanks to Liz Houghton, Sandy Riley, Phyl Gulvan and Alison Scott for hours spent sorting, pricing and labelling donations; Liz, Phyl, Alison and Irene Winfield for participation in sales; Pat Manuel and Marie Miller for handling regular distribution activities on sewing day, like BOM returns, bindings, labelling and donations; Carla for her donation of blocks for the raffle quilt, Margaret Parker for piecing the quilt top, Jan Fozzard for custom quilt, and Norma Nielson for her role in singlehandedly managing ticket sales which resulted in $560 being raised; for the heavy lifting involved in transporting goods to and from the lockup thank you Gwen Parry, Lorraine Thomson and Alison Scott; and for promotion Carla and Gwen.
Carla’s 30th quilt will be presented to the winner on Sewing Day this month.
The final busy bee is on Sunday 28 October from 10 am to 3pm at Alexander Park Craft House. Morning tea is provided. Please bring sewing machine and notions and lunch. Liz has the first of the completed bandana quilts for ‘show and tell’.
