A glorious day to enjoy stitching in a sun filled hall and celebrating a special birthday for our dear member Gill. Thank you Gill for the lovely speech you made about how you cherish the friendships you have made at quilting over the years.
If you haven’t been yet I can recommend the Craft & Quilt Fair at Homebush, it finishes on Sunday. The quilts were amazing and plenty of stalls to tempt you into spending money. Don’t forget to say “hi” to Kathy and Helena at the Material Obsession stall. Two of our members were finalists this year and have their quilting hanging at the show. Congratulations to Grace and Kathy.

Our members are a busy group, and I would like to mention Jane who delivered the quilts to Bear Cottage and to Heather for delivering 9 large quilts donated by Kathy to Blue & Yellow Hearts on Monday. The quilts were well received by the organisations and put to go use.

Show & Tell
We had a visit from Hayley today who has made a bright and colourful bag from jelly roll strips and has enough left over to make another bag, an excellent present for a friend.
