John Sturtz leads our team of Quilt Frame makers
Two Cooroy community clubs came together recently when the Cooroora Woodworkers Club assisted the ‘Patches of Cooroy’ quilting group in their preparations for the recent Cooroy Quilt Show.
The organisers needed six additional display frames to hold the quilts. John Sturtz took on the job, assisted by Peter Althaus, Alan Warner, Bill Todd and a new member of the club Kerin Shekel on her very first time in the workshop. A number of other members also pitched in at various times.
The team built six large frames, mostly from Silky Oak timber. Each stand comprised twelve components designed
for easy assembly, knock-down and storage. John delivered the frames and helped assemble them for the ladies prior to the Quilt Show in the CWA Hall. The result was a marvellous display of quilts ready for public viewing.
