Community Day

 Hi Everyone,

A very wet and cold day this week but many of you braved the weather to come.

We have 6 Members' Birthdays in November. Congratulations to Marie G. who turned 90 on her Birthday this year. Marie is a very special member of our group and it is always so good to see her. 

Carolyn has not been well and we miss her. She is hoping to get back to sewing soon.

As it was the first meeting for October it was Community Day. What a busy hall it was too. Many groups were working on their Community Quilts. There was much discussion and recommendations for the block placements for the Orange Group.  The quilt is looking lovely.  Narelle and Helena stayed back to finish the sewing.

Grace set up a table for those who wanted to learn more about making Waggas. It was heads down and stitching up a storm. Very enjoyable.

If you are free on 15 October you might like to join the Zonta Club at North Sydney Community Centre, Civic Park, 220 Miller Street for Breast Care Assembly Day from 1 to 4 pm. A donation of $5 is required to help pay for the materials. 

Narelle  has emailed out a very comprehensive list for the Retreat at Kurri Kurri. It is always fun and you get lots of sewing done. Enjoy!

Show and Tell:

Dawn attended a workshop to learn the Kawandi technique. Below is her piece she was working on. Kawandi is a hand-stitched quilt, made from scrap fabric. It is assembled from the outside in. The edges are turned under and stitched together with batting laid inside.The quilting proceeds in a spiraling line. New patches are laid on top as needed. It is fun and easy to do to use for place mats, a special feature, etc. 

As there was no other Show and Tell this week, I am including Kathy's lovely pattern which she exhibited in our Show this year.

A section of our Bicentennial Quilt which is currently hanging in the Museum at the Hunters Hill Town Hall. It is well worth a visit if you haven't done so already.

A quilt from Bev which intrigued us when it was first shown. A great pattern.

Until next week ....
