A Very Busy Day

Well, some of us had a very busy time yesterday. Back to back meetings to de-brief and finalise feedback from the show, then a committee meeting to plan events for the rest of the year.

At last we were able to get over to the hall and enjoy sewing, chatting and catching up. The usual delicious morning tea and plenty of work of a quilting nature to do. No wonder we all look forward to Thursdays so much!

Coming shows for those who have the opportunity to get to them:
Canberra Craft and Quilt Fair 21st to 24th August 10am - 4.30pm daily
Berry Quilting Ehibition 30th and 31st August
Novocastrian Quilters 30th Anniversary Show 11th and 12th October

For more details call Elva.

Grace handed out the photos people sent in with their show quilts. If you didn't pick yours up, Grace has them safely stored for you.

Kathy D talked about some great workshops coming up. If you weren't at group and are interested, give her a call.

Very soon, the last newsletter will be published. We would all like to acknowledge and thank Ailsa for her wonderful efforts in keeping this communication stream going. After this final blockbuster one, the website, blog and group emails will take over the communication role. Thanks Ailsa. We're looking forward to this one indeed. 

Finally some Show & Tell time. Considering we are just surfacing from the show, it's amazing what work is being revealed!

These two cute baby quilts were made for The Grace Centre by Beryl Brooks (blue one) and Marie Kennedy ( whitish one)


This hexagon beauty was done by Jenny Stitt. When did she get the time? A question on everyone's lips! Much admired as girls gathered around to examine and photograph it.

This striking quilt was done by our newest member Hayley. Welcome to Hunters Hill Quilters Hayley! Judging by this work, you're going to fit right in. Gorgeous.

This last quilt was made by Grace and will be donated to Hunters Hill Community Centre.

So there you have it. Hope I've covered everything. Don't forget, any urgent news updates will come by the group email. Look forward to seeing you next Thursday. Enjoy the weekend. Try and stay dry!
