On Saturday, April 20, the walls of the Wee Waa Community Arts and Cultural Centre were adorned with the colourful talents of the district’s quilters.

Patchwork perfection and stitching splendour were on display as a crowd gathered for the Wee Waa Branch of the Country Women’s Association’s Quilt Show.

“What a wonderful day it was,” said WWCACC coordinator Lisa Almagro.

“Thank you to all who came to marvel at the talented craftsmanship of our local quilters and stayed to enjoy a scrumptious CWA-style morning tea – these ladies can cook.

“Thank you to our quilters – we had a few of them in the gallery.

“We are blessed to have your masterpieces brighten our space.

“Thank you to Bridget and Sonia for helping with the installation.”

The CWA’s Wee Waa branch president Denise Robinson said they had “an overwhelming response” from quilters.

“We had people from Narrabri, Bingara, Tamworth, locals from Wee Waa and Pilliga – all over – it was lovely,” Denise added.

“Lisa did an exceptionally good job, we couldn’t have done it without her.

“And all the ladies who turned up to do the morning tea and to be on the front door to help – thank you.”

Denise said “hours and hours” of time, love and care goes into crafting the quilt masterpiece, which don’t just look fantastic – they’re valuable too. Due to the popularity and success of the quilt show, it’s expected to be back next year.

As reported last week, the exhibition remained open last week for all to enjoy, there are plenty more activities and events coming up at WWCACC.
