February Community Day

Thursday was the first community day for 2017 and there was a lot of activity in progress:  fabric selections, cutting and pinning.

Special Dairy Dates:  

Hazelhurst Gallery,  Gymea,    February 11 - 21, 2017:  Rolina Project Exhibition.   The final works from a course by Bob James,  entitled 'Abstraction - Colour and Design in Art Quilts ' will be on display.  Several of our quilters took part in the course and  have their works on display: everyone is invited to attend.  

Early reminder of the dates for our annual retreat at Blackheath:  September 15 - 17, 2017.  Elva also mentioned that there is a vacancy for a Retreat Coordinator :  volunteers please chat with Elva.  

AGM - notices have gone out for Thursday, February 16th, 12 noon.  An opportunity for all members to show their appreciation for the 2016 committee and welcome the new 2017 committee.  


Grace arrived with a couple of boxes of donations for the group:    'wagga'  wool  from the Quilt NSW guild and fabric for community work from Kathy D.   All were admired and distributed.  As always we thank Kathy for her constant generosity to the group.

Show and Tell:

Four new baby cot quilts for the Grace Centre:   3 from Lindy and 1 from Beryl R.   All super cute.

A very proud Merlyn showed off the apron made and appliqued by her grandson: great work.

A cot quilt from Iris:  made for that satisfaction you get from a 'finished' UFO.

Happy sewing, see you next week,   Iris    (Elva is sorting out 'technology' problems !!)
