We will soon come down to earth, but we needed a fairly lengthy feedback and wrap -up meeting this week to make sure we had gone through everything.
It was unanimously agreed that this show was an outstanding success, with lots of new ideas being tested out. All these things pass on to the planning of the next show, so that we continue to get better and better.
Congratulations to everyone who participated in any way. Every little bit helps in the big picture success. Well done!
Application has already been made for our 2018 show to use the Town Hall again, so the process just rolls on. Here we go again..........!
Don't forget that our birthday party will be held next week, 8th September. Bring your champagne glasses. There's lots to celebrate, and we will have some visitors I'm sure you'll all love to see!
SHOW AND TELL
In amongst all the excitement of the week, members still came forward with some great show and tell items.
These lovely baby quilts were made for the Grace Centre. The first is by Maree K....
and the following three by June P.
It was delightful to see a quilt top by one of our new members, Christie. Fine work, and a lovely range of fabrics and colours. We have another hexi lover among us. Hooray!
This counter change block quilt was shown by Iris. It is destined for our community collection.
Another showing from our new member Sue. However, this one was made by her sister some years ago. I believe it was from 1998, and was made to celebrate the marriage of their parents - 60 years anniversary! So much love and care has gone into the detail of this fantastic memory quilt, from family trees to copies of wedding certificates and guest lists! Amazing. Thank you for sharing this precious gem with us Sue.
And finally Sheila shared her latest gorgeous bag, which she wasn't happy with and re-worked as a result. I think you can be happy with it now Sheila! It's lovely.
Onwards and upwards everyone.
See you next week!
