A QUIET DAY! 26/5/16

The hall was relatively quiet today, with a small number of members in attendance. Was it the sudden cold weather? Was it that the following day was the retreat? Who knows. We all asked each other these questions, but at the same time enjoyed extra space and a quieter room. 
As luck would have it, the morning tea turned out to enough for three times the number in attendance! Go figure......

We discussed the happy news that, not only do we have display space at the Guild Show on Friday 24th June, but it's also a large space. Plenty of room to make a terrific display to promote our group and our coming show. We will soon start planning what to take and how to display it. We will also call for helpers to spend an hour or two at our 'stall' on the day. 

Check out the Guild's latest Template magazine for a fabulous article about our group written by Iris. A wonderful promotional spread. Thanks so much Iris. 
In the same issue is an item reporting on Jessica's Friday Showcase at the Guild office. Well done Jess. We hear it was very well received.

All the girls who have signed up are excited about the retreat weekend, starting tomorrow. It's bound to be a huge success given the thorough preparation that Narelle has put in. Thanks Narelle!
Tomorrow we head for the hills!

SHOW AND TELL

Maureen from the Sydney Breast Cancer Foundadtion came along to accept two community quilts.
The first will be raffled at that group's Rugby Union Long Lunch function in June.

                                  

The second will be raffled at a Ladies Lunch in October.

                                  


We wish the foundation all the best with these fund-raising events. Maureen was extremely grateful for the gifts, and promises to give us feedback about how they go.

                                   


                                   


The following baby quilt has been completed for the Grace Centre by Felicity, with the help of her husband and daughter. A very special quilt indeed.


                               



Maree K has completed another Wagga, much admired by everyone. Gorgeous. Better keep them coming Maree!


                                 


                                 

This next quilt has been completed from bits and pieces previously belonging to Joan Gai (a former member). Here it is being pinned by Helen, Doreen and Gil, in preparation for quilting. 

                                



                                  
     
And so concluded our last meeting before the retreat. Plenty of work will be done in Blackheath. Stay tuned for a crop of new quilts at following Show and Tell sessions.
See you all soon.
