Olive is our workshop convenor and very hard working committee member.
Every year Olive as the hard job of putting all our great workshops together.She is always trying to bring teachers from all over Australia that teach quilting for all our members be it the art group,modern and applique. Even when she was not well she was there to do great cooking for the teacher and ladies doing the classes.She is a great member of out committee.
Loretta has been on the committee for a long time. She attends both day and night meetings and is also on the 2Q mod committee. Loretta has run the Challenge for many years and is involved with set and pull down at many different shows during the year as well as posting or arranging collection of quilts so they can bee seen by groups outside of Brisbane.
Loretta’s significant contribution is the Çhallenge quilts and all her work to ensure members work is shown in Brisbane and around the state. The challenge is an excellent showcase for 2Q.
Jan is a long time member of 2Q and has participated in many roles over the years. I first came to know Jan through the 2Q Quilting Retreats. She shared her knowledge of quilting and always had time to help if one had a block on where to go with a quilt. She always supports 2Q.
Jan is always generous with her help on anything to do with quilting – will always find an answer and always has a smile for everyone.
Her main contribution to 2Q was initiating our Retreats – over 20 years ago. For many years she led those retreats at Peregian and Laidley. In the early days, these retreats helped cement friendships that have lasted years. Jan was always available to help anyone with elementary patchwork or quilting questions or with design or finishing off a quilt. She helped significantly through other positions at 2Q but the Retreats are the things that were one of her most important contributions to 2Q.
Gail Price has been a volunteer since she joined Queensland Quilters. She has been Quilt Convenor for the past two years. She has always been available to assist with the hanging and pull down of our show in October. Her computer skills have been of great assistance with our slide show at the quilt show. She is also an active member of Linus and helps with the promotion of this great charity at our October show. Gail is on the Appraisal team and has helped the newer members of this team understand the process for giving a replacement value to the members for their quilts.
Gail is an excellent coordinator. She is highly organised and always cheerful in her support of her Quilt Show Committee.
