Yesterday, Canberra Quilters hosted its annual Biggest Morning Tea Quilting Bee – part of the Cancer Council’s Biggest Morning Tea program. So far we have raised $2415.75, with some more donations still on the way. All funds raised go to the ACT Cancer Council to help fund research into the disease.
It was a fun day highlighted by games, puzzles, competitions and horse racing(!) – all done with a ‘day at the races’ theme. Here are some of the images captured for your enjoyment:

Before the arrival, all the tables were decorated and a pack of info and puzzles awaited…

In keeping with the Race Day theme, participants also could wear a hat or ‘fascinator’. Judging was by coin donation for each hat. The winners…yes that is a fascinator made with sewing supplies!

The winners of the major raffle display their prizes…
