    Members have been busy making quilts and items for prizes at our quilt and craft show which is on the Mother’s Day weekend of May 13 and 14 at the Bob Wood Cultural Hall, Anzac Street, Sarina. Open from 9am to 5pm on Saturday and 9am to 4pm on Sunday. Our theme for the show is honouring mothers. Lunch, morning and afternoon tea of sandwiches, cakes, scones, pikelets and slices will be available. Water and soft drinks will also be available.

    Along with the members quilts on display there will be a display of art quilts from Queensland Quilters in Brisbane. A viewers’ choice of members quilts will be selected by the public. Some of the traders attending are: > Howards Drapery > Big Red Bus > Iddy Biddy > The Fabric Nook from Biloela > Mix and Match design from Bundaberg

    > Molly Dookes > Needleworx > Mackay Sewing Service > Echidna will demonstrate Brother sewing machines > Also our local Bobbin ‘n Sew.

    Margaret Olive from Patchwork Paradise is our guest tutor and demonstrator who will present a trunk show. A stall of Fibre Arts members work will have items for sale.

    There will be lucky spot draws during the two days, a lucky door prize drawn on Sunday and multi draws on both days. Our quilt made by members will be raffled and drawn on Sunday also. Admission is $7 and each person will receive a complimentary gift.

    This is a local community event which is open to all ages and families. Come along and meet with friends over a tea or coffee, peruse the displays and take advantage of purchasing from the stall holders supplies on sale.
