The Loxton Quilters celebrated
a milestone this year, marking 30
years of quilt creations and charity
The club's first meeting was held on June
7, 1988 to form a committee, which con-
sisted of Sally Reindeers as president and Pat
Holme as secretary and treasurer, along with
committee members Shirley Moore, Judy
Mangelsdorf, Helen Simpson, Di Boehm,
Marilyn Polgreen, Sue Thomas and Jan
In the club's early years, workshops teach-
ing hand and machine quilting skills were
held to boost membership numbers.
Initially, the Loxton Quilters met at the
Uniting Church Hall on the second Tuesday
of the month.
In 1989, the meeting venue moved to
Loxton TAFE and in 2007, the group moved
to its current location at the Loxton CWA Hall,
where members meet alternative Tuesdays.
International Quilters Days were organised
by Loxton Quilters in 2000, 2004 and 2014.
Loxton Quilters have displayed quilts at
many venues throughout Loxton as part of
the Airing of Quilts events and have had an
annual display at the Loxton Christmas Tree
Connor George, son of Rebecca and Danny Voigt,
of Glossop, was born at the Loxton Hospital
Complex on December 16.
