Story & photo by Cllr Mick Gallagher of Mt Colah
Gwen Fazio of Hornsby kept the audience fascinated when she gave
a presentation of her colourful Aboriginal patchwork at Hornsby Central
Library on Friday 3 October 2014.
³(DFKTXLOWKDVP\RZQFKRLFHRIFRORXUVDQGWHOOVDVWRU\ZKLFKUHÀHFWV
my philosophy,” said Gwen who is self-taught.
Gwen informed us of how the early Aborigines of southern NSW, and
Victoria sewed patches of hide together with kangaroo sinews. She also
told us how quilt making was taught aboard the convict ship 5DMDKwhich
carried 180 convict women on the voyage from Woolwich in England to
Hobart in 1841.
The quilt was presented to the Lt-Governor’s wife, /DG\-DQH)UDQNOLQ
This ‘Rajah Quilt’ has been preserved and held at the National Gallery of
Australia, Canberra. Its story is one of hope and persistence, and has been
a central subject of study into colonial life since its rediscovery in 1987.
Some 20 people attended the presentation including Marianne Mowbray
of Hornsby who has been quilting for 15 years and also does needlework
craft known as VPRFNLQJ
Marianne is a member of Berowra Quilters which annually makes some
50 quilts a year for our local Hornsby Kuring-gai Hospital.

“My friend Jane in Orange is a quilter, so I was interested to attend Gwen’s
talk,” said Lorraine Coglan of Hornsby.
Gwen’s brother Chris Brown visiting from Brisbane also attended the
event which was co-ordinated by Merilyn Hills of Hornsby Heights,
Readers’ & Advisory Team Leader Hornsby Library.
Gwen was born in Inverell NSW on 15 February 1948. Her parents
were Edgar Brown (of Texas, QLD) and Ileen (nee Porter of Tingha near
Inverell NSW). The family then moved to her father’s country in Texas,
which is the tradition of the Kambawal clan. Her dad worked in the timber
industry there.
“The colours in my quilts take me back to the youth of my father’s country
in Queensland,” reminisced Gwen.
Gwen came to Sydney in 1971 (age 23) on a working holiday. In 1972
she met ‘Joe’ Giuseppe Fazio of Hornsby who had migrated to OZ from
Italy in 1970. They were married in 1974 and have lived at their home in
Citrus Ave Hornsby ever since.
They have two adult children: ‘Sal’ Salvatore (40) and Andrew (38). Both
boys attended St Patricks school at Asquith and St Leo’s College at
Wahroonga.

Dear Bush Tele,
Please have a look at the photo.
This is the new footpath near street
numbers 66 and 68 on Berowra
Waters Road, Berowra. Do you have
a slightest idea how a mum with a
pram or a disabled person on wheels
would get around the power post?
I don’t.
Interestingly, the builders made
detours around some other posts,
but not around this one... And
there’s another similar one nearby, I
just don’t have a photo.
Alex Kozlovski, Berowra resident
Editor’s Note: According to
Cllr Nathan Tilbury, “Stage 2
works on Berowra Waters Road
%:5DUHQRWTXLWH¿QLVKHG$OO
the problematic telegraph poles will
be relocated and the application
for the relocation was applied for
over 12 months ago when Council
¿UVWFUHDWHGWKHLURZQGHVLJQ
for kerb & guttering, drainage &
bicycle lane with new footpath.
However Council is still waiting
for approval from Ausgrid. With
WKH6WDJHZRUNVQHDUO\¿QLVKHG
detour paths will be built around
all the problem telegraph poles (4
or 5 poles) which will allow either
a pram or wheelchair to safely use
the footpath. Because of the delays
in Ausgrid approvals, the pole
relocations will now occur by mid
next year. Council appreciates the
understanding and patience shown
by Berowra residents affected by
this huge construction job.”
