WHILE most people raised their tea cups to support the Cancer Council's Biggest Morning Tea this month, the Port Curtis Patchwork Group went the extra step further, lifting their needles and sewing like mad for charity.

Beautiful handmade items and fabrics were auctioned off, creative sewing challenges met and raffles sold to raise more than $2000 for cancer research on Saturday.

Port Curtis Patchwork Group president Chris Coleborn said the event was a success, with about 60 people attending.

The fundraiser has become a tradition for the group, which has hosted a Biggest Morning Tea now for five years
