QCWA has been actively involved in the community with support in the way of a donation to the Warwick and District Historical Society.
A number of QCWA members attended the Pringle Cottage Museum complex for the opening of the latest exhibition, Accessorise, Accessorise - A Woman's Touch.
The exhibition was officially opened by QCWA Condamine Valley/Warwick branch member Judy Bilbrough.
Following the opening, Mrs Bilbrough presented a $200 cheque to Warwick and District Historical Society president Janice Flood.
Mrs Flood expressed sincere thanks on behalf of the Warwick and District Society to QCWA for its support and interest shown in this latest exhibition.
The exhibition is a collection of garments worn by ladies covering the 1880s to the 1950s.
One of considerable interest is a 1940s evening dress worn by 29-year-old Thora Lawder during the Second World War.
The exhibition will be open during August (normal museum hours) and will be well worth a visit to view these garments and reminisce over the past years with fond memories.
Glen Aplin Quilt and Craft Show 2012 was supported by QCWA Glen Aplin.
Last year the show was a great success with more than 200 people attending during the three-day exhibition, to view more than 100 quilts and wall hangings.
This year we are offering a bigger and better display with a special feature artist - award-winning domestic machine quilter Bev McClune.
There will be a display of antique sewing machines and aprons as well as a display of hand embroideries.
The quilt show will be held at Glen Aplin Hall on:
Friday from 10am-4pm;
Saturday from 10am-4pm; and
Sunday from 10am-2pm.
Entry is $5 to view the exhibition or $10 which includes Devonshire tea and lucky door ticket.
There will be a multi draw raffle, light refreshments available, a variety of speciality stalls and a scissor-sharpening service.
