Guild Meeting February 2017 : Happy New Year everyone. We welcomed Jan-Maree Ball, OAM & CEO of Aussie Hero Quilts along with 3 happy recipients of Quilts & Laundry Bags, representing the Australian Defence Force. What an amazing organisation & sentiment carried by all the Quilters who support this worthwhile task. Please take the time to visit the blog & learn more.
