Quilting comeback bequeaths cash
THE under-appreciated art of quilting is making a comeback, with the Goonellabah Quilters holding their four-yearly Quilt show at Lismore City Hall.
There'll be three chances to cop the latest in contemporary quilting, Thursday and Friday September 6 and 7 from 10am to 4pm and Saturday Sept 8 from 10am to 3pm.
Marvel at the diversity of quilts, fibre arts and other items on display, buy up at the sales table and vendor stalls, take notes at the demonstrations or just gorge yourself at the cafe on the delicious refreshments, probably home-made by multi-tasking quilters.
A raffle offers a bite at a beautiful quilt and all proceeds, including the $5 admission, go to the Lismore Base Hospital "Our House" appeal.
