Material Girls Down Under were invited to hold a Quilting Party for the morning. Maru brought lots of fat quarters, notions, tools and books for us to browse and purchase. Quilting bingo and trivia games added a bit more fun to the morning. Even a few of the non-quilters ended up taking home some lovely fabrics and products.
Everyone brought a plate and a wonderful and yummy morning tea was enjoyed by all.
Towards the end of the morning, we drew our guessing competition, which had eleven prizes. Congratulations to all the lucky winners.
Thank you to everyone who attended, donated or took part in our guessing competition for your generosity in supporting the Cancer Council fundraiser!
