Betty’s banner to feature in relay

A quilted banner which will feature in the Relay For Life rally event in Bangalow next March was last week presented to a founding member of the Bangalow Quilters, Betty Dengate.


Mrs Dengate, who commissioned the banner, had hoped to make it, but failing eyesight prevented her from completing the project.


The quilt was made on her behalf by members of the Bangalow Quilters.


It was designed by Leonie Oliver, cut, machine appliquéd, bound and finished by Elizabeth Casimir and quilted by Linda Jenner.


Mrs Dengate said she was thrilled with the quilt.


Bangalow Quilters meet fortnightly at the All Souls Church Hall in Bangalow. For more information, phone Elizabeth on 66848151.
