Doughty Boys on Fire

Yesterday was the official opening of the Sydney Craft and Quilt Fair, and what a busy day it was. Kathy and Sarah started the day at the official show opening, at which the show was opened by Judy Hooworth, speeches were given and prizes were awarded. Material Obsession awarded two prizes in the Junior Member (13 to 18 years old) section, but our most exciting news was that not only did Kathy's two boys, Sam (age 10) and Noah (age 12) piece their own quilts to enter AND hand quilt them (!!), but Sam also won second prize in the Junior Member (up to 12 years old) section. As you can imagine, his quite teary mother was very proud, and Sarah will admit to having a few blurry moments of her own. Congratulations to both Sam and Noah on having the dedication and patience to complete their quilts so beautifully... we look forward to the next ones.
