The annual Lut-Da Award goes to a quilter who has made an outstanding contribution to their local or quilting community via the medium of quilting. It is presented at the Australasian Quilt Convention awards dinner.
This year the award was shared between our own Iris Hockley and Roslyn Moules of NSW for their work in community quilts.
For many years Iris was the convener of the Quilts for Others program of Canberra Quilters. She handed over late last year, but this is a fitting tribute to Iris and national recognition for the work she has done with this program.
Congratulations to Iris and the other hardworking volunteers in the Quilts for Others program.
