It was a scorching hot day, but the ladies from Stitch Gatherers were ‘cool as cucumbers’ at their choice of venue, Karuah RSL.

Before the feasting got under way, Joan Williams thanked the twelve members present for their hard work during the year and passed on a suggestion from Maureen Kelly for a special event at the 2016 Melbourne Cup Lunch.

This event is to encourage North Arm Cove families to support the YESS project, an iinitiative to provide students entering high school with a $100 grant to purchase sporting gear or equipment. It's also a jolly good excuse to get together for a hearty lunch and a fun filled afternoon.

Before the meeting got under way, Joan Williams read out a letter from Ronald McDonald House, thanking the group for the recent donation of knitted beanies and teddy bears. These gifts were greatly appreciated by residents, staff and volunteers. Many of the beanies donated were on display at the recent 'Biggest Morning Tea.'

Then it was time for 'show and tell'. Kay Furley amazed the group with her beautiful candlewick and lace bedspread....

Around 60 people attended, including a fair sprlnkling of men who really got into the spirit of the auctions and dug deep into their wallets for the Cancer Council.
