AGM for 2021

 Hi Everyone,

We had a robust Annual General Meeting this week. 25 members attended. It was wonderful to see faces we haven't seen for a while. The minutes will be forwarded to each of you.

Messages were sent from Sue D who is in London and from Laurel who was having a sewing get together with friends near her home. 

 The discussion topics at the end of the meeting were welcomed. Both Grace and Sandy were wearing their name badges. I must say they looked really good. We have fallen out of the habit of wearing them. Marie G remarked that we should make an effort to wear them again. Many agreed.

The topic of the kitchen was also mentioned. Many of us prefer the simplicity of self catering for lunch. Perhaps we can have further discussion about this. As there is still a lot of uncertainty about COVID  I prefer to let things stay as they are for the moment.

Grace also mentioned that it is our 40th Ruby Anniversary this year. We have traditionally all contributed to making a quilt with each of our names embroidered onto it. Grace will think of a design for us.

Another challenge we have is for the RPAH prematurity unit's worldwide celebration in November. We have offered to make 40 baby quilts for this. Their special colour is purple and shades thereof. They require even only a splash or two of purple. They don't have to be all purple.

Remember that all baby quilts require cotton wadding. It will be too confusing to have some use polyester and others not.

Show and Tell:

Alison has finished a quilt she started a while ago. Lots of paper piecing. It is for her granddaughter when she is a little older. a lucky little girl.

Baby quilts from Beryl R, Grace and Sheila.

Grace has finished a quilt that was donated to us. Grace has hand quilted the borders and turned the binding to the back so the pattern was not lost. A lovely quilt. 

Ros made this fun quilt and used all her leftover batik scraps for the backing.

Another photo of baby quilts from Grace.

Grace also made this quilt using a centre piece from a Kathy Doughty's design. Lots of hand quilting too.

A closer look at Sheila's baby quilts.

Until next week  ........
