Remembering one of the Originals and a new Show date.

 It was a quiet and somewhat sombre day as many members planned to attend Doreen’s funeral, held today at Macquarie Park Cemetery and Crematorium. Gill, a good friend of Doreen, had kept us updated about her ongoing health battles but sadly Doreen passed away last week. 

Doreen was a prodigious quilter, and one of the founders of the ‘Wagga makers’ within our group. Hayley, a member, who now lives in the Torres Strait Islands but regularly attends our retreats, sent us a lovely email in which she remembered Doreen’s “ wicked sense of humour”. 

Hayley also promised us a slide show of what island life is like in the Torres Strait which sounds like a wonderful lifestyle....particularly with plenty of crayfish. We will hold Hayley to her promise!

Alison has booked Hunters Hill Town Hall for May 26-29 2022 for our Show. Fingers crossed that life will have returned to at least nearly normal and that we will feel comfortable holding the Show then.

Just a brief reminder that membership fees are due.

Alison had been helping a friend of her daughter to make a quilt. With some of the leftovers Alison has made a brightly coloured baby quilt for the Grace Centre.

Until next week. Deb
