Our July meeting was very busy and very well attended, with 117 members and 3 visitors joining this special occasion. Our special theme was the Biggest Morning Tea - tables were decorated and the gold coin raffle, a silent auction and quilt raffle raised funds for cancer research.

Thanks to the many members and their friends who knitted squares to be made into rugs to be sent to Nepal. Helen Osborne has made an enormous contribution to Caring and Sharing Quilts over many years and the members were delighted to see her receive the Margaret McGregor Award.
