Local quilter takes 1st place

This quilt won first prize at the NSW Quilt Show held in the Darling Harbour Exhibition Centre in June. The quilt, named ‘Lucy Boston Goes to Town’, was placed first in the ‘Professional quilt that is pieced by the maker and quilted by another person’.

Over 4,000 pieces were hand sewn over papers using 250 different fabrics. Helen Granleese stitches with the Maclean Patchwork and Quilting Group since moving back to the Clarence Valley from Temora NSW.

Congratulations to Helen, a very talented quilter. Helen also constructed the quilt on display in the Lower Clarence Arts and Crafts at Ferry Park which is to be raffled to raise funds for the Lower Clarence Hospital Auxiliary.

Tickets at $2 are available at Ferry Park. MPQ meets each Tuesday at 9am in the Uniting Church Hall in Maclean.

… the Independent would like to ask for your support. The community is reading our paper more than ever and embracing the content we produce, but advertising revenues across the media as a whole, are falling. Unlike other news organizations we do not charge for our publication – so, to keep our community connected and deliver the local news to your door we would like to ask for your help..... to keep the Independent bringing you all the local community news takes a lot of time, hard work and people power, But we do it because we believe our presence matters – who else tells it how it is, where it is, and what it is.

If you like our journalism, if you like the community news, if you like our sports coverage we would love it if you could help fund it, our future may depend on it. For as little as $5, you can support the Independent – Thank you.
