And an eye witness account from Joy:
Excellent speakers. I especially loved the talk by Trudy Cowley & Dianne Snowdon who spoke about their book Patchwork Prisoners, a story of their extensive research into the women prisoners on board the Rajah who made the famous quilt.
Some sewing or handwork was done......a lot of walking around town and environs by others, and of course lots of chatting and laughter. There were quite a few shopping bags and parcels - this not including the shop hop purchases!
It was a fantastic retreat and I would like to thank all the committee members (there were not many of them) for all the work they did in making it such a great retreat.
