I have had a few people say to me I’ve done a fantastic job, thank you, but I could not do half this job as well without the great support and help from these fantastic women and gentlemen, so a huge thank you to my team of helpers:-->
Helga Lee, Leisa and Amanda Everest, Kerin Griffiths, Keryn Hall, Judy Parsons, Ray Part, Pat Skvarc, Jean Grove, Jean Nicholson, Mavis Bunting, Shirley Boyd, Rachel McGuiness, Bev Roy, Daphne Higginson, Connie Peeters, Heather and Tony Lamont and some new comers, our Fibres and Fabrics ladies Veronica, Lyn, and Helen and I know I’m going to miss some, so thank you so very much. Also to Bev Gunton who takes a permanent record of our exhibition.
