Tin Can Bay produces a ‘Quilt of Valour’

The Tin Can Bay Quilters held their AGM last month and new office bearers are: Jacquie Cross – President, Louise Hanks – Vice President, Maree Sayers – Secretary, Leonie Meggitt – Treasurer.

We made a Sashiko scissor case and final items for our May Friendship Day. We also had visitors from as far up as Bundaberg, down to the Sunshine Coast, and even from South Africa. The group will be working on Ricky Tims quilts, like this one by Pam Bauer.

During the past year the group made a donation for Quilts of Valour, who present quilts to service members and veterans of the ADF in recognition of their sacrifice for Australia whilst deployed on combat operations.

Representative Bryn Johnson from Caloundra accepted the quilt and gave us a short history on how this organisation was started in Australia.

We meet on Tuesdays, 9am, at The Community Complex, corner Tin Can Bay Rd and Bayside Drive, next door to the Cooloola Bowls Club. Contact Jacquie Cross on 54864468.
