QCWA 2022 Centenary




100 years and Beyond

Across Queensland, QCWA branch members will be celebrating the Association’s 100th anniversary which occurs on 11th August 2022.

The Centenary Calendar of Events was launched to members at the opening of the Association’s annual State Conference, in October in Gladstone.

While Divisions and Branches are nominating their celebratory ideas for a compilation calendar of events, here is a sneak peek at some of the ideas.

Organisers will host an invitation cocktail dress launch event (initially scheduled at Victoria Park Function Venue on Monday 14th February - now being rescheduled due to Covid-19 conditions),  and a Gala dinner ball with the regional conference in Toowoomba in the same year.

There will be several touring expos including:

  • 100 extraordinary, exciting and artistic tea cosies.
  • 100 vintage or inspirational new or retro aprons.
  • Knitters are planning to knit squares to cover an entire football field, to then make blankets for the needy.

A range of commemorative merchandise,  will be available including a Calendar featuring photography by Ann Briton (at the 2022 launch); chocolates plus fridge magnets, stickers and a badge featuring the QCWA’s centenary logo.

Long-time supporter of the QCWA, Wallace Bishop has been commissioned to produce a unique piece of jewellery. The precise piece is firmly under wraps for now.
