Members of the mischievously titled Millthorpe Sew and Sews quilting group gathered for their annual weekend workshop at Tallwood Hall recently. Helen Knox was again available this year to help group members with sewing up a pattern called New York Beauty.

As always, everyone’s patches looked completely different because of the colour palettes chosen. The end products will range from cushion covers, to table runners for Christmas, and even enough for a quilt from the most industrious.

Raise your cup:  The biggest morning tea raised $894.45 for the Cancer Council NSW to support their world-class research and services.

The group meets each Friday at the CWA Hall in Pym Street from 10am to 1pm. New members are keenly sought for the Friday group if they are to continue at the CWA Hall.

Everyone who has an interest in any style of machine or hand sewing, or even knitting and crochet, is welcome. It’s an informal group that gathers for coffee, chat and handicraft, not necessarily in that order.

Biggest Morning Tea Success

Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea for Cancer, hosted by Millthorpe CWA Branch on Thursday, May 24, was a great success. Millthorpe CWA Branch President, Gwen Aspinall, said that $894.45 was raised for the Cancer Council NSW to support their world-class research and services, and that they would like to thank all who helped and attended, for their generosity in supporting the event.

The raffle winners were: first prize Jillian Ferguson, second prize Ruth Kingham, third prize Beverly Nesbitt and fourth prize Susan Chudleigh. The coffee mug donated by Cancer Council NSW was won by Susan Sanders.

Millthorpe Bowling Club Music

There was no Friday Night Live on June 1, however Wickes and Watts, featuring Millthorpe’s own Gavan Wickes and violinist Simon Watts, held the fort, playing their mix of Irish-inspired tunes and songs. Friday Night Live will be back at the Bowling Club on July 6.

Gabbi Bolt will be the next feature artist for Acoustic Sunday, June 17, from 3-5pm at Club Millthorpe. Gabbi is a young and original singer/songwriter from Bathurst. She is an accomplished musician with a really interesting view of the world. Tickets can be purchased online from stickytickets.com.au or at the door on the day. It may be the best $10 you ever spend!
