Over 150 quilts were on display, showcasing the amazing talents of the Bowerbird Quilters.

Boambee Bowerbird Quilt Group spokesperson Rose Dierick said, “We were so thrilled with the large number of people through the doors.

“Our numbers on Saturday were twice that of Friday, so it was a very busy day for us all.

“Our quilting group really appreciated the support of many businesses who assisted with our raffle prizes, which helped us to achieve such a great financial result and donate so much to the Community Centre.”

In partnership with a number of other local organisations including the Men’s Shed, the Community Gardens and the Coffs Vintage Car Club, visitors were treated to a large and varied display of work.

The Coffs Harbour Men’s Shed woodworking items were really popular with the crowd, while gardening enthusiasts were able to pick up some bargains from the adjacent Community Gardens.

A fruitful coming together of the local community.
