After all the rain in Sydney over the last weeks, it was good to see the sun on Thursday.
Unfortunately though, the rain has not been falling in the Catchment area and many parts of NSW are in severe drought.
Members were talking about the QuiltNSW show and the various quilts on display. A QuiltNSW member won the first raffle prize. The show was a great success. Many photos were shared.
Alison had visited the Patchwork Plus stand at the show with her daughter. They were chatting with the owner and found that her shop is in Miranda. They subsequently visited the shop. Alison was impressed with the variety of fabrics for sale including many spots and stripes.
The owner very generously donated 5 metres or so of beautiful soft fabric stripes. We will use these pieces for baby quilts and backings.
Sheila had also visited a quilt shop, Patchwork on Pittwater in Mona Vale, during the week. This one doesn't have a shop front but is upstairs which makes it difficult to find. It is worth a visit if you are in the area.
Iris has received a few more single bed quilts for the Women's Shelter. They have asked for 18 so if you can help out that would be good.
Show and Tell:
First up we have a colourful quilt from Gill. Gill was at Logan's and discovered that the owner is retiring so they are closing down. It is always sad to see a shop close.
A teaser sample of our Traditional Quilt for our show next year. Volunteers are needed to help with the hand quilting. It really is a lovely quilt.
Below are photos of quilts we are donating to the Women's Shelter.
Until next week .....
