G’day all

Have you bought your tickets for the Annual Aussie Hero Thank You Dinner??

Today is the last day so here are the details for the last time….

The Aussie Hero Quilts Annual Thank You Dinner is almost here.   The purpose of the dinner is to show those who sew for us that they are truly appreciated by the members of the Australia Defence Force.  The event creates an opportunity for our sewers to meet and chat with members of the Navy, Army and Air Force in a social setting and each year has a lasting impact on the attendees.  
Quilters are traveling to Canberra from all over Australia from all over the country, from WA to QLD, SA and Victoria. This is the sixth year we have had a dinner, the first being 20 people at the Hornsby RSL in 2017.  This year we are hoping for around 200 guests.
During the evening you will have the change to bid on a number of exciting Auction prizes, not the least of which is the opportunity to commission your choice of quilt.  
We would love it if you could join us. Everyone is welcome.

I know this dress is rather formal but this is part of the gift to the quilters, many of whom rarely meet a recipient, let alone see one in uniform.  This will be a very special experience for them.
