26th October

Hi Everyone,

Today we continued with the making of our Wagga and all the squares will be completed by next week. It has been a great effort by those who have been involved in this project. 

Our first raffle quilt has been completed and it gave me great pleasure in showing our members the quilt today. Over the next couple of weeks the quilt will be photographed for us so we can start moving forward on publicity for our Quilt Show.

Would you like to receive the QuiltNSW newsletter? Please complete the form on the front table at quilting so we can organise for it to be forwarded to you.
All hard copies of the Template can be found in our Library for you to read.

One more week to go before we head off to St Joseph’s Spirituality and Education Centre, 8 Humphreys Road, Kincumber South for our Retreat.
Narelle will be sending out an email in the next couple of days with all the information you will need for our weekend away. The Fat Quarter game is back by popular demand plus other fun activities have been planned. There is also a suggestion to meet up for lunch before our designated time of arrival at St Joseph’s and those details will be in the email. 

Show Committee Meeting
Our next meeting will be held on Thursday 23rd November at 1pm.

Show News
