The Queensland Country Women’s Association Tully Branch Hall was abuzz with activity on Thursday, June 10, 2021, with twenty-four members and guests in attendance for a special morning tea to celebrate sheep and wool’s contribution to Australia and to display and dedicate a beautiful and specifically themed quilt made by members of the Tully Branch.
Each year, the Tully Branch of the QCWA study a product, and this year’s theme has been ‘Sheep and Wool.’ The event was attended by Jean Rosendahl, who lives in Silkwood, and is the State Chairperson of the Agriculture and Environment Team.
The hall was decked out with a number of exhibits to celebrate sheep and wool, and attendees particularly enjoyed having their photograph taken next to the ‘Drover and his dog.’
A delicious morning tea was served, and the proceedings were opened by Craft Convenor, Frances Maloy, who recited the poem, ‘A Shearer’s Nightmare.’ Sharon Lord, who had coordinated the making of the quilt, then had the crowd singing along to ‘Waltzing Matilda’ and ‘Along the Road to Gundagai.’ The members involved in the making of the quilt were given a stirring round of applause. The Sheep and Wool quilt was then dedicated to the Tully Branch where it will stay proudly hanging on its wall.
The Tully Branch of the QCWA holds a craft morning in its hall at 5 Plumb Street every Thursday from 9.30am to 12noon. Visitors and prospective members are very welcome to attend. Please telephone Craft Convenor, Frances Maloy, on 0412 071 418 should you wish to receive any further information.
