Quil­ters en­joy bush set­ting

Central and North Burnett Times - - OUT & ABOUT -

IF THERE’S one thing the Monto Quil­ter’s Group like bet­ter than hand­i­crafts, it’s a good chat.

For 10 years the group has been head­ing out to the Ca­nia Gorge Tourist Re­treat for a week­end filled with all their favourite ac­tiv­i­ties, and while num­bers were down a lit­tle this year, the weather was per­fect.

“We do a bit more em­broi­dery and hand­i­work now, be­cause it works bet­ter for talk­ing,” Val Brig­house said, with a laugh.

On Fe­bru­ary 7 the group will cel­e­brate their 25-year an­niver­sary and all mem­bers are en­cour­aged to RSVP by De­cem­ber 8.

RE­LAX­ING: Mar­ion Schulke, Adele Evans, Carolyn Dull­away and Edna Gust en­joy a re­lax­ing lunch on Mon­day, dur­ing their an­nual quil­ter's re­treat to Ca­nia Gorge.

It may have been a so­cial trip, but Adele Evans made great progress on more than one fine quilt.

Adele Evans and Yvonne Dun­can’s out­fits are as colour­ful as their quilts.

Thelma Wil­liams, Lorna Din­gle, June Lin­gard and Val Brig­house kick back for lunch after a lovely morn­ing of quilt­ing and talk­ing.

The Monto Quil­ters take the chance to chat and work ont their quilts at the an­nual get­away to Ca­nia Gorge.
