Birthday Meeting

Waverley Celebrated 37 years with a Sit and Sew meeting, lots of chatter and certificates for members who had reached 10, 20 and 30 year milestones.

The present went to Waverley Benevolent Society in the form of a cheque for $5,000 from our recent Quilt Show. Waverley Patchworkers have a very long history in supporting local agencies. Pat Green from the society  told us of the big impact our donation will make in the lives of families struggling to make ends meet.There were cupcakes for all and the candle was blown out by Jacie and Lorna, both celebrating 30 years of membership.

    What a beautiful and interesting website! I love all the illustrated works, its wonderful to find a group like this still functioning in Australia.
    When I lived in Queensland, in Maryborough, I enjoyed evenings with a similar group.
    But that was 1987, and since moving away, circumstances have conspired against my continuing working with such creativity.
    Incredibly, after many moves and numerous clear-outs, I find a small (very small) stash of treasured fabrics tucked away in a cupboard of my South Yarra apartment.
    I wonder, would any of your members be interested in a donation of random fabric? It’s of varied weights, fabric types, patterns. Some dating back to 1965 or earlier. Please email me if interested.
