First Aid Kit Roll

Someone sent me this link to a tutorial which I think is REALLY practical.

Portable First Aid Kit


Greyville Show

Tollgate Quilters Guild took a stand at the annual hobby/craft show at Greyville Race course last weekend amid a deluge of rain.
We hung quilts,demonstrated the craft of patchwork and quilting and generally hung out with crafters of all persuasions-including a few quilters.

Its a great venue for us to promote quilting as a craft and hopefully we have inspired visitors to the show to try their hand at it.
