And we start off another year!! It's been a very warm summer so far and not exactly quilting weather. Time for making some tops (to be quilted when it cools down a bit!).
The first Saturday meeting of the year will be this week 18 Jan 2014. There won't be a shop in attendance but we will be doing Buy, Sell, Swap. January’s meeting will present an opportunity for you to offload any fabric, books, quilting gadgets, etc., that you no longer want, as it will be a “BRING, BUY, SELL AND SWAP” day. So have a look through your fabrics and take the chance to reduce that stash (HA, HA)!
The Friday night group have already met this year. Friday Night ladies have returned in good numbers for our 1st 2014 meeting. The next Friday nights will be 17th and 31st January. On the 28th February we will be having a “fussy cutting” workshop with Rachael and Jacki from Blueberries will be bringing the travelling shop along with her. This workshop is filling fast so let me know if you want to come. We will start at 6.30pm that night and the workshop will be 3 hours.
And the Tuesday group is still going strong - Again we have had a great month of show and tell. One of our members, Patricia James was approached by the ladies she helps with various crafts at a retirement village, to make a quilt they could hang when they had their church service. We congratulate her on this spectacular quilt.
