Quilts are in the Air

Easter 2019 is an exciting time for the Maclean Patchwork and Quilters Group. To coincide with the Highland Gathering celebrations on the Easter weekend the Group will be presenting an ‘Airing of the Quilts’ at the Uniting Church Peace Hall in Church Street, Maclean on Good Friday April 19 – 10am til 4pm and on Saturday April 20 – 9am til 4pm.

Come along and join the group in this age old practice.

You can expect to see quilts from traditional to modern, handmade, appliquéd and art quilts. Sure to inspire and please the eye.

Entry fee is $5 which includes morning / afternoon tea.

Raffle tickets will be on sale at the door for a beautiful ‘Amish style quilt’. All the proceeds from the event will be going to the Maclean Hospital Auxiliary ultrasound appeal.

There will be a sales table with an array of handmade items and other goodies, plus you will also have the opportunity to talk to our very talented crafters. Looking for a Group to join? New members welcomed.

Enquires: Sue Carl on 0408 190 697.

… 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.
