27th April

 Hi Everyone, 

Today we were able send 13 Community Quilts to a new organisation for us called RizeUp Australia who help people affected by domestic or family violence. Our quilts will be used in new accommodation with everything that is needed to make it a home so they can make a fresh start. We look forward to working with RizeUp in the future.

2024 Quilt Show planning has begun and we need help from our members for a successful show. At next weeks meeting we will talk about the Raffle quilts, vacant positions to be filled and the proposed date for our Show. Thursday 25th May we will close off nominations for a Judge and Charity. Voting for the Judge and  Charity/ies will be held on 25th May.

Our next Show Committee Meeting will be Thursday 25th May at 1:30pm.

We are also planning a workshop on Appliqué for 11th May. More details coming soon.

 Hi Everyone,

What a morning we had being locked out of the hall only to find out a flat battery was the cause! Thank you for being so understanding and waiting in the rain for the hall to be opened by Council.

Show Committee Meeting is next Thursday 27th April at 1:30pm

There are a few positions vacant on the Show Committee if you are interested in taking up a role please come and join us. This is a rewarding opportunity, as our Quilt Show is a time to showcase our quilting skills, raise money for charity and connecting with our local community. Please remember to submit your suggestions for a Judge and a Charity in writing to Alison or myself.

Show & Tell

Jenny completed two quilts for Community - one from a lockdown challenge and the other was made from Jenny’s collection of 2.5 inch squares. Dawn made a cheerful blue and yellow baby quilt.  Our 2022 Christmas Challenge quilt was completed by Iris who selected the quilt design for us to complete over the holiday break. It is amazing what you can do with a jelly roll that was gifted to us, thanks Sybil.
