Community Day

 Hi Everyone,

A busy day today with members working on Community quilts. One quilt was in the process of working out colour combinations on the design wall, another having it’s label being sewn. Patience was being exercised with the piecing work of hexagons and at the end of the hall a table covered with a Wagga. I am always amazed at the variety and creativity of our members Community quilts.

Happy Birthday to our members who celebrate their Birthday in May. šŸŽ‚

Retreat Weekend 27th - 29th October  We are looking at Kurri Kurri TAFE for our retreat this year and have a tentative booking but what we require is to know if you are interested in attending. I have placed the retreat list on the table today for members to register your interest. We need a minimum number of 20 people to move forward with our booking. Narelle has the accommodation prices however they are based on 20 people attending so please consider coming and write your name on the list ASAP.

Quilt Show 2024  Last week I reported we had our first Show Committee Meeting - a copy of the minutes is on the table for you to read. Kathy has offered her expertise to design our Raffle quilt for the show. Today Kathy spoke to us about her ideas on the design and choice of fabrics. To help prepare us on the technique required for the raffle quilt Kathy will hold a workshop on AppliquĆ© next week at quilting.

If you wish to participate bring with you some background fabric approx 8” , 5 or 6 different coloured fabrics for sewing a stem, leaf and flower, glue stick, mini iron and woollen ironing mat if you have them.
