Bullsbrook and Districts CWA are proudly presenting the Quilt & Craft Show this winter!

Held from 14 to 26 June, this exciting community event showcases the work of talented local artists and crafters, features a great line-up of interactive workshops for all skill levels and also raises vital funds for the Centre for Women's Safety and Wellbeing and the Cancer Council of WA.
