QW11 No. 14

Members of our Association donate literally hundreds of quilts each year. They are distributed to the children's hospital, neo-natal units, cancer wards, cardiac wards, hospices, refuges, foster care, the Flying Doctor, and probably other places I don't know about.

Our Sit-n-Sew volunteers work on these quilts during the exhibition to show members of the public (a.k.a. civilians) the quilting process. The bags were made be volunteers at a local quilt shop and they will go to foster kids.

This is where members of the committee greet the public and answer any questions. We also sell our catalogue and commemorative badges. It's a good place to sit for a few minutes and have a breather and maybe even get a stitch in or two.
