11th July

Hi Everyone,

Today was a day of catching up with each other owing to school holidays we were smaller in number. 
I was able to distribute to those who were present a hard copy of the HHQ 2024 Show Guide for Members it will also be emailed (please check your spam box) to all members and posted on our WhatsApp - HHQ Show and Tell. It is important that everyone reads the Show Guide so we are all informed and have no misunderstandings on what is expected from our members for the smooth running of the show.

Show News
We made it into the the weekly eNews email sent by Hunters Hill Council and the July QuiltNSW Newsletter.

The photos below are 3 hand pieced and hand quilted quilts that will be for sale at the show from Stage Sales and some fabric bins that balance off the side of your sewing table which can easily detach for convenient emptying. Each bin is unique owing to the different types of timber used as the counterbalance.



Volunteers are required to help out at the Show so add your name to the rosters which are available at quilting or send an email to Sandy with your availability on it.

🧵 Next Show Committee Meeting will be 18th July.

Hi Everyone,

We had another busy day today at quilting with delving into boxes for inspiration in gathering fabrics and felt for our sewing corner at our Show. Another two boxes of fabric were also sorted and added to our ever growing collection of community fabric boxes. 
Rosters for the Show were tabled today for members to add their name to helping out at the Show. Narelle also has the food rosters ready for us to add our names. Thanks to the ladies who have already emailed us to add their names to the rosters. I will be sending an email to all our members over the next week as a reminder about volunteering for the Show, so please check your spam just in case it does arrive to your inbox.
Next week Grace is organising a fun time for us as we will be making scrap bags to sell at the show.

Hi Everyone,

We are so fortunate to live in this amazing city and to have such a beautiful harbour. We see inspiration all around us and Sydney does not disappoint with running of Vivid 2024.



Today at quilting we had a guest Lynne Spears who belongs to the Zonta Club of North Sydney. Zonta is a world wide organisation that believes in building a better world for women and girls. They do this by raising funds to support women who are rebuilding their lives after fleeing domestic violence or a misplaced person from another country. The funds raised are used to encourage women to gain skills by attending TAFE or to give the funds to a women’s shelter. They also hold sewing days to make breast pillows for women who have had breast surgery, make birthing kits to be sent to remote areas in Australia and overseas and help support Days for Girls.

We were able to help the Zonta Club of North Sydney by donating two quilts to be raffled to raise funds.
