Quilts take over the pews to create cosy church

The U3A Quilting Group members held an exhibition of their work in St Barnabas’ Church on the October long weekend. The quilts made a dramatic display draped over the backs of the pews.

The exhibition was open to the public from 10 am to 3 pm both days for a gold coin donation. Tickets in a free quilt raffle were available as well as morning and afternoon tea.

All proceeds went to Church charities but putting our organisation in front of the public in such a positive manner was invaluable promotion for U3A.
