Just returned to my hotel after attending this awards dinner. Canberra Quilters members were very successful, taking out 3 awards:
Congratulations to Pamela Brockwell for receiving the National Quilt Award (sponsored by Bernina) for her quilt Canzone Rosso (our Best of Show in 2015).
Congratulations to Jocelyn Green for receiving the Lut-da Award for outstanding contribution to their community through quilting. A previous CQ recipient is Iris Hockley.
Congratulations to Beth Miller for receiving the Rajah Award for outstanding contribution to quilting in Australia. Previous recipients include CQ members Margaret Rolfe and Jenny Bowker.
It is an unusual occurrence that all three awards would go to members of the same organisation in the one year.
Just a reminder of Calzone Rosso:
