We can hardly believe that almost 4 weeks have passed since the commencement of AMQF 2014, what a week it was and I'm not sure that we've fully recovered yet:-) There is still quite a bit for us to do but in the meantime we thought we'd share a few things.
There were 73 kits purchased for the Alzheimer's Benefit Quilt Challenge and from these there were 29 quilts submitted to us for judging. The total raised for Alzheimer's Australia was a little over $5,000, what a tremendous effort. Thanks to everyone for supporting this great charity.

The invoices for the quilts were issued last week and as payment is received the quilts are being sent out. All those that entered a quilt receive a certificate and a sash or rosette; these have been mailed out and you should receive them by the end of this week..
We have had quite a few requests from people wanting to order a Registration Bag - we have now added these to the website for purchase. Please note that these bags are plain, as in there is no screen printing on them - only our embroidered logo. These cooler bags would make an excellent Christmas Gift and with this in mind we have reduced the price to $20.00. Some gift ideas are as follows;
- for the man in your life - fill them up with a cool block and a few stubbies
- fantastic lunch box - no matter whether you're a tradie or a lady
- do you have a 'nutter' in your life - fill it up with nuts, crackers and nibbles
- is there a baby in the family, then what a classy way to pack your bottles and bits for bubs
- why not fill it with chocolates and/or mini bottles of bubbles

We'll be back with more as soon as we have something else to share. Good luck with achieving all you need to do as we race up towards Christmas.
