We had a small group at our meeting this week. Perhaps many are recovering from our show.
Narelle has booked our retreat for 14,15,16 October at Kurri Kurri. A minimum number of 20 is required for this.
Elva demonstrated the little felt hearts we have been requested to make. If you would like to participate, Elva has templates for sizing etc. The money earned from selling the hearts is for charity.
The Show Committee will meet on 25th of this month for our after show wrap up. It was interesting to have feedback from some of our members this week. Apparently there were questions from some visitors about the Banner across the freeway that we used to hang. The reason we no longer do that is because it is heavy and difficult to hang from the bridge overpass, especially if it is windy; insurance is extreme as you can imagine if it blew off onto cars below; and it was expensive to have the dates replaced for every show.
We received comments that Hunters Hill residents were unaware of the dates of our show. We had advertised in TWT which many in the area read. However the article was not very prominent and easy to miss.
Another suggestion was that the Bunting needs to be hung at the corner near the Gun Sculpture, as well as at the front of the Town Hall. This would catch your eye as you drive past. A number of visitors remarked on the brightness of the bunting which worked well.
Apparently some people had difficulty locating the Town Hall. Maybe we could put a map on the back of our brochure as Eastwood Quilters did for their new show venue.
It is helpful to receive feedback from the public and your friends so we can improve every year.
No show and tell this week.
Until next week .....
