Visitor: Helena welcomed Gil's friend Libby who was visiting for the day.
- Reminder of the AGM next week at 12noon, when we show our appreciation for the work of the 2014 committee and welcome the 2015 committee. A general meeting will be held prior to to the AGM at 11.30am.
- Susan St.J. organized a new roll of wadding - bleached 80-20 and 108 inches wide, with a roll of Polydown to follow in a couple of weeks.,
Show and Tell:
Beryl R and Margaret have made quilts using the same pattern - but each with their individual colour choice. Grace quilted both of them, using different designs. It was interesting to see how the end results give two very different quilts.
Susan St.J. also showed us the table runners that she is making for another group and suggested we may like to consider the idea for our next quilt show. (sorry, no picture)
Keep sewing until next week ... Cheers Iris

The 'thank you' award from the City of Sydney for the quilt that we made for the Lord Mayor's Picnic, is now hanging on our 'Award Wall' - which is fast running out of space !

The Christmas Challenge Show and tell ...
The Christmas Challenge produced lots of excellent contributions to our community activities. The challenge has three options: cot quilts, quilt bags and funky flower or star blocks.
First the cot quilts for the Grace Centre - 17 plus quilts were made : I say 'plus' because I suspect that the counting went a little bit wrong and some quilts were added to the 'existing pile' instead of the 'challenge pile' - so apologies to the quilters who were not properly applauded for their work, I know that Marie K was one .
