Rajah Award 2024

“The 2024 Rajah Award for an outstanding contribution to quilting in Australia goes to Lorraine Carthew!!!”

This award acknowledges an outstanding contribution to quilting in Australia, whether it be a contribution as a quilting teacher, designer, author, historian, guild worker, retailer, or a combination of work in several of these areas.

This award is called the ‘Rajah Award’ in tribute to the historic Rajah quilt made by convict women on their way to Australia in 1841.

Our congratulations to Lorraine on her well-deserved award.
