The Thursday evening group held a Breast Cancer research fundraiser tonight, it was a smash hit. The room was cleverly decorated with so many beautiful things, from feather Boa's to huge jars of buttons to tiny nick knacks, old machines and sewing equipment, lace bobbins, books etc. etc. and so many U.F.O.'s, or maybe they are still WIP's
The Girls were excited to announce at the end of the evening they raised $360.00, Well Done.
An addition: - Two ladies - you know who you are - are being teased dreadfully, they made an addition error, the amount raised was actually $460, and added to that Debbie met with a friend in the street who very kindly made a donation, All Up - The girls raised............$500.00!
There are so many pics of so many people having fun (Jenny - dashing across the room to 'rescue' a prize for one) and so many interesting works, but time is a problem at the moment. BUT I do promise to load more as soon as I can, in the meantime, enjoy these pics.
Three glam J's and a glam Sue arrived early on in the evening. They missed the Breathalyzer.
A glam Betty & Inga also arrived early, Betty was breathalyzed, wearing her mask!
How cute, a Holly Hobbie sewing machine, no doubt the best pressie for a little girl growing up to be a quilter.
Couldn't resist this pic of an old Singer,
U.F.O's and collections.
The entrance walking in from the Atrium, pretty and festive.
This flimsy is of the most beautiful fabrics, the hand and drape is magical. Hope Jane gets inspired one day to finish it. Looks like someone has a collection of unfinished dollies as well.
Little Miss Bear and some friends, thought of photo shopping the red eye there for a sec or two.
The 'no peeking' method of drawing winning tickets.
Betty modelling her mask, there was a stray feather there, and it was ticklish, worse than bubbles even.
Di was another winner, in fact the two last tickets to be drawn were announced together, and Di being the savvy quilter that she is, and recognizing the size of a folded fattie, quickly zoomed in under the guard of the other winner to score these fatties and needlebook.
Di bought her neighbour along, who won this wonderful package of skin care,
Sue choose a beautifully wrapped box, and inside the wrapping a note saying "there are 47 more of these for you", wow, can you imagine the excitement!. She opened the box to find...........1 individually wrapped loo roll - of course we all hope its more than 2 ply but that's a story for another day.
Janet choose the 'Romantic Dinner for Two' package, it came complete with entree (cheese sticks) main course (jar of spaghetti sauce and not to forget, the spaghetti) dessert (a flake bar) ambiance (colour coded candle - coded to the bag that is) and the romance? why a lovely bottle of red of course.
Sally modeling her prize.
June and Letitia, drawing prizes from the upmarket ticket box, these girls could make chopping an onion fun.
Debbie was delighted to win, she was lucky enough to get a voucher for a meal out............
...........at Almost French. Debbie found she had lotsa, lotsa friends. But the most unselfish friend was Jenny, what a good friend to say she would just force herself to use the voucher for Debbie.
The remainder of the platters of very french pastries are on the table as Debbie walks by. They were divine.
Another winner, Lis and Mandy came along to join in the fun.
June won the lucky door prize. Letitia was thinking of a few good uses for it.
