This Saturday is delivery day for items entered in our Annual Members Exhibition. Items can be dropped off at Canberra Quilters headquarters at Cook, between 9am and 6pm. If you can't deliver personally then get a friend or family member to drop off your items.
All quilts must have a sleeve attached to the back of the quilt for hanging and/or security. Please refer to the latest issue (June) of Connecting Threads for the details.
