Airing of the Quilts huge success
THE second Glenrose Patchwork Airing of the Quilts was an even bigger success than last year with more than 100 quilts displayed and $9000 raised for breast cancer research.
Glenrose had more than 1000 people visit the event, coming from the Sunshine and Gold coasts, Lismore, Dalby, Stanthorpe, Brisbane and even two people from Denmark.
Last Saturday, apart from the wonderful quilt display, the Killarney School of Dance entertained, and the Aperitif Jazz Ensemble played up a storm while visitors enjoyed a light lunch.
First prize in the multi-raffle of a beautiful queen size quilt and pillow was won by Graham Buchner, of Warwick, and all other prize winners have been notified.
This year the event raised more than $9000, which will be presented to the Breast Cancer Association of Queensland at the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers.
All funds raised stay on the Darling Downs and are used to help fund Breast Care nurses in the area.
Organisers paid tribute to sponsors who supported the event and the many volunteers who made this event so successful, as well as all the patchwork quilting ladies, who allowed their beautiful quilts to be displayed.
