Night Owl Quilters present the BIGGEST biggest morning tea

Night Owl Quilters’ Biggest Morning Tea Batemans Bay Soldiers Club auditorium, Beach Road, Batemans Bay Tuesday 9 May 2017 Start 9:30 am. If you're looking for an event to satisfy your taste buds, appeal to your appreciation of spectacularly crafted textile art, engage in a shopping event like no other, or to socialise, all whilst helping to raise money for the Cancer Council, then make sure you don't miss this event. The Biggest Morning Tea will be presented by Night Owl Quilters at The Soldiers' Club, Batemans Bay on Tuesday 9th May.

Amongst the highlights of the morning is a Dutch auction, where you can bid for many beautiful quilts or other objets d'art and possibly win one for as little as a gold coin. There is also a sales table where you might be able to fulfill your birthday and (early) Christmas gift lists. Or find something not only beautiful, but also practical for yourself. As well, the major raffle for a magnificent quilt (pictured) will be drawn. Tickets will be available on the day

Night Owls President, Frankie Gosbell, said “ Our members have been working hard and coming up with new ideas for the sales table this year. They put in a tremendous effort, both individually and at working bees where they have combined their talents on some of the auction quilts and raffle quilts. With the generosity of their time and fabrics, all the money raised goes to the Cancer Council.”

Night Owl Quilters have been running this event since 2000, starting from humble beginnings in their club rooms and progressing through larger venues as news of this exciting event grew over the years. In 2010 they resettled into their current venue at the Soldiers' Club where approximately 250 guests have enjoyed an extended morning tea, along with lots of merriment and eyecatching displays of quilts, textile arts and crafts, many of which have been snaffled up by eager buyers. With all the profits going to the Cancer Council, this biennial event has been recognised as one of the most successful money raising efforts in Southern NSW and as at 2015 they have raised around $86,000 in total.

Tickets, only $5, available at the door. This is such a popular occasion you are sure to catch up with old friends you haven't seen for a while, or have the opportunity to make new ones. You might even become inspired to develop your creative dreams by finding out more about the club and joining them in their fortnightly meetings.
