We’re getting near the exciting bit of the Tea Cosy and Soft Toy Competition. Judging will be on Sunday afternoon; then next week, we take all the entries to the Lavender Farm, and set up the display. This year, five ladies have loaned us their beautiful handmade quilts to decorate the walls of the shed at Warratina....thank you ladies...I don’t know all of your names yet! I noticed last year that people loved the quilts as much as the tea cosies...so enjoy the bonus quilt airing as well.
There are more entries this year than last year; I don’t know exactly how many yet; tomorrow we’ll pick up the last of them from the Maroondah Handicrafts, the East Ringwood Post Office, and from the Lavender Farm.
Thank you to all those people who have donated teapots. Tea cosies look so cute when sitting on a pot...where they’re meant to be!!
The display will be open from 10 am –4 pm every day, from Saturday 4th July – Sunday 19th July.
Entry is by a gold coin donation.
All money raised by the entry donation, and from the sale of the tea cosies and soft toys, is donated to the Cancer Council. Go to http://vic.cancercouncilfundraising.org.au/craftacure anytime to check out our progressive total. So far, we’ve raised $5150.
I hope to see all of you at the display again this year.
Warratina Lavender Farm

Just a note about the tea rooms at Warratina; it gets a bit busy in there when the tea cosy display is on, so it’s a good idea to make a booking if you intend to go and spend a bit of time munching lavender scones, or whatever other delicacy takes your fancy. The tea rooms will be open every day, from 9-4; so you can go in and have breakfast, lunch, or morning or afternoon tea to sustain yourselves before or after checking out the tea cosy display, which is held in the lavender drying shed. The phone number for the tea rooms is 59644650.
Just like we did last year; the tea cosies that you purchase will have ‘sold’ written on their price tags; but will remain in the display till 19th. You can arrange to have them posted to you, at a cost of $7.45 for up to 500 grams. Also, we’ll be arranging pick up points. We’re fairly flexible and will try to work out something mutually convenient.
