Welcome 2017

Toowoomba Quilters welcomed in the New Year in style in a new home, it was a big step for the club after meeting at the one venue for over 25 years. There were lots of boxes to unpack and sorting to be done ready for the year ahead.
Show and tell was a delight to see, some ladies were very busy over the holidays.


There is lots of room for the ladies to spread out and socialise with other members.
