Our convenor Sue presented a cheque for $7,000.00 to Viive Howell the Research Director of the Bill Walsh Cancer Research Laboratory. This money was raised from proceeds of our 2019 Quilt Exhibition. Viive will use the money where she feels it will be best utilised towards less funded cancer research projects. She also talked about the Women in Science day 2020 which highlighted some of her researchers.

Louise (Loo) a new member to our group talked about her sewing journey and explained that she hand sews and hand quilts all her quilts taking up to a year for each one because of her background doing embroidery. Loo showed us her current work in progress.
