Today was the judging of the Alzheimer’s Benefit Quilt Challenge. We have been overwhelmed by the incredible work that has gone into the quilts which have been so generously donated for our charity.
Our judge, Deb Treherne from Alzheimer’s SA, was equally impressed. Deb is the Dementia Educator, Leisure & Lifestyle and works extensively with dementia patients using art and craft as a stimulus. She was very excited to be a part of the judging process.
I won’t keep waxing lyrically or hold you in suspense any longer. It gives us great pleasure to announce the winners……
First place goes to Kathleen Stonehouse, Hampton, Victoria for her quilt, “The Journey”.
Second place goes to Denise Griffiths, Shellharbour, NSW for her quilt, “My Hero, My Dad”.
Third place goes to Lorraine Stone, Blakehurst, NSW for her quilt “Tranquility”.

Kathleen Stonehouse – The Journey
