A beautiful batik tablecloth was presented to the Society by Thelma Service in memory of her husband Bob. Decorated with colourful motifs and the Society name, this cloth was fashioned by their son Jeff, a well known batik artist from Tamborine Village. The cloth can double as a wall hanging or a backdrop at shows.
