25 Year Celebration

On the 5 December 2009 members of the Toowoomba Quilters Club Inc. celebrated their 25 year anniversary in conjunction with their annual Christmas luncheon.

Approximately 45 members attended, and the club rooms were festooned with members’ Christmas Quilts and other Christmas items. The theme of the day was ‘silver’ and some of the members brought along creative hand-made ornaments of silver paper and foil.

As part of the proceedings, our 2009 raffle quilt was presented to the winner, Hannah and we also handed over a cheque (proceeds of the raffle quilt) to the manager of the Blue Care Therapy Centre Toowoomba, Mrs Jill Cory.

The day was filled with fun games and competitions, block swap, secret santa, raffles and lucky door prizes. Any monies raised on the day went to our Christmas charity, Spiritus.
