The return of the Indoor Competition and Exhibition was welcomed by many our thanks to June Weatherstone, her helpers and the BQI members and their families who assisted in set up/down of the theatre.
The Airing of the Quilts displayed many varied styles of quilting and as always very spectacular, our thanks to the Braidwood businesses and building owners for their assistance.
In addition there were many quilts displayed in vacant buildings and privately by a number of businesses such as the Braidwood Pharmacy and Braidwood Antique Store.
