When we started

We have two craft groups that meet in the Toogoom Hall on Wednesdays. Toogoom Craft and Chat meet in the morning 9am to 11.30am. We do all sorts of different crafts including knitting, crochet, cardmaking. cross stitch, painting, patchwork and quilting.  The quilters stay till 4pm and make quilts for seriously ill children in hospitals. We call ourselves Toogoom Project Linus Group.  We send our quilts to the Royal Brisbane Children's Hospital and Hervey Bay Hospital.  We also make quilts for special projects at times e.g. for the bushfire survivors.

We thought, let's have a quilt show. What about the other crafters? Well, let's have a quilt and craft show. We could call it the Coastal Crafters Carnival mmm sounds good to me. Who's going to help? What do we need to do? Let's get started.

We got a committee together - there's Annie, Catherine, Claire, Desley, Jan, Joan, Josie, June, Lorraine, Pam and Wendy.  Lots of helping hands.
