Birthday wishes to all those who have a September birthday. Spring is in the air and hopefully we can look forward to some sunny weather. Gardens are blooming which is always a wonderful sight.
Akiko has finalised the accounts from our Show. Even though we had 161 fewer guests come we still managed to make enough money to pay our two charities the same amount as last time.
This is a credit to you all for your hard work. Thank you. Representatives from the two charities will come on our 40th Birthday celebration to receive their cheques.
As September 22 has been declared a Public Holiday we will celebrate our Birthday on 29 September.
Robyn's trophy has been engraved. I was very happy to give this to her for her Best in Show quilt. It was also very special to have Marie G. at our meeting this week.
Grace spoke to us about the Waggas. Their sales contributed greatly to the amount we can donate.
Grace suggested that for our Community Day at the beginning of the month, she and Jenny will set up a table to demonstrate and help any who would like to learn how to make a Wagga. They are lovely things to work with using all the beautiful wool fabrics.
Grace also said that two ladies who bought Waggas last show, came back for another one each. Waggas are unique to our group thanks to Doreen who introduced them.
