 Hi Everyone,

Sad news to start the meeting this week. Robyn Jnst. called me before our meeting to let you all know that her husband had passed away suddenly at the weekend. Many of you will be sending your own condolences and I have sent a card on behalf of the group.

Marie K found in a Quilters Companion No. 58 magazine a pattern and photo of a quilt Carolyn had designed and made. Carolyn was delighted to see it.

Ann set out the blocks for the Ukraine quilt for those who had made a block.

New bunting flowed in. We need about 100 so keep up the good work. Bright colours required and a chance to show off your quilting skills.

We had a show meeting this week. There are now only a few weeks before it all starts.  We covered a great many things. Narelle will have the jobs list for us all to look at this week or next.

I urge everyone to put their names down for as many jobs as they can. With many older members unavailable we will need everyone to pull their weight to help so we will have another successful show.

Also a  reminder to wear your Name Badges at the show.

Show and Tell:

Jenny has put together the blocks made during lockdown. We received so many we can make two quilts and a wall hanging.

Elva is busy knitting these little cover-alls and hats for a South African charity. Apparently many women have nothing to wrap their newborns in when they go home. A clever design with bright happy colours.

A baby quilt from Jane.

It was good to see Lindy this week. Lindy has made this wall hanging for her new home. It will attract much attention from guests I am sure.

We have some very clever sewers in our group. Sue D has made this cute outfit for her granddaughter who lives in the UK. The granddaughter loves owls. Maybe she will become a Harry Potter fan when she is older.

Until next week ....
