Another busy and enjoyable meeting this week.
Heather kindly donated a free motion foot for our Janome machine. There is a clear plastic box in the cupboard for the machine.
Iris gave us details for this year's Lord Mayor's Picnic Quilt. The theme this year is the Circus. Iris will be handing out instructions for the various blocks next week for us all to participate.
Narelle handed out the instructions etc for our Retreat in September. There is another Patchwork shop nearby. Helen and Suzie visited it last year. It is a 15-20 minute drive from Kurri Kurri.

Kerry was watching Sunrise on TV this week. They had a segment about Beecroft House, the shelter we donated 18 quilts to. She spotted some of our quilts on the beds.
The commentary mentioned that the quilts were provided by a local quilting group to welcome the women when they arrived.
Marie Kennedy is helping Moina sort through her stash. Moina has moved into a smaller place and does not have room for all her fabric.
Marie will be bringing some in each week for us to choose and for Community.
