The Rotary Club of Drummoyne held their 32nd Art and Quilt Exhibition at the City of Canada Bay Civic Centre, Drummoyne on 24th to 26th July 2009, and we were lucky enough to be asked to participate again. In 2009 the proceeds went to the Rotary Clubs "Supporting our Community" project.

As in the previous year, we entered about 30 quilts. We had a range of cot, crib, lap and single sized quilts and one or two large doubles. About half of those we exhibited sold.
Here are a handful:
That year we were encouraged to include some handcrafts amongst our exhibits. The ladies all got into the act, and despite the huge number of quilts we produced we all made lots of handcrafts too.
There were shopping bags, lavender bags, lingerie carriers, hand made cards, cushions, Christmas decorations, toys for babies, teddy bears, and more. The tables were groaning with lovely things, and the crafts were very popular.
