LAST MAY MEETING! 25/5/17

Well, we will soon be into June, and everybody is looking forward to the NSW Guild Show. This will be back at Darling Harbour this year, just 4 days from 22nd till 25th June. There is a sheet at the hall outlining all the methods of getting there. This includes public transport as well as available parking.

Next Thursday for us at HHQ it will be Community Day, and we will be having a couple of visitors joining us. Looking forward to that. Plenty of community work to pick up and go with if you dont have a community project already on the go. Just see Iris and she'll point you in the right direction.

Our Contemporary and Traditional Show Quilts are still doing the rounds, so put your name down for a turn at quilting either of these. Still plenty of work to be done on them.

We are still chasing lost keys, which we assume have been inadvertently left in someone's handbag or sewing basket after their turn at kitchen duty. If everyone would please have a little search in these places just to check. They must be somewhere!

SHOW AND TELL

Not a lot to show this week, mainly because I forgot to take shots of the baby quilts. My apologies to Beryl and Susan. I'll chase those up for next week's blog!

Iris showed this lovely quilt which she has made for her eldest grandson as a wedding gift! Lucky bride and groom indeed. It's absolutely gorgeous Iris!


Gil showed us the completed wagga which was shown here last week being pinned and quilted on the tables. Turns out it is a commission from a gentleman who previously bought a wagga at one of our shows. He was obviously impressed with this quilt form and asked for a 'large' one to be made for him.
And here it is! Looking fabulous Doreen and Gil!


And so we leave you for another week. See you Thursday.
cheers, Elva
