January 2017 Newsletter Meeting Thursday 19 th . January

Happy New Year to all our members

2017 is show year – Thursday 18 th . May is the day

– the count down begins……

After a most enjoyable festive meeting in December we welcome 2017 and begin our plans for the next Loddon

Quilters show in earnest.

Now is the time to sort out your quilts and other items for the show, fill in the registration form and sent/bring it

back to Chris. The registration form will be attached to your email. You can fill it in online or print it out and fill

it in.

 Entries must have been made since the last show (that is in the last 2 years):

 Please note the maximum size we can accommodate on the stands.

 Take time to tell us why, when and how you made your quilt, you know what you like to know about

other people’s quilts so let them know the same about yours.

 We are planning a Christmas display so if you made anything new please enter it

 Christmas bunting - we would like to display, let us know how many pieces of bunting on your tape.

We will talk through the registration form at our meeting and there will be help at hand if you need it.

This is your show and we hope everyone will find something to show.

The 10 year challenge

Joan and Jacky have the ‘10’ blocks and will arrange their display, so no need to put yours on your registration

form, make sure Joan or Jacky have it.

If you haven’t made yours yet there is plenty of time. The challenge is to make a 10” quilted block representing

10 – of anything.


Joan is in the process of ordering some calendars for sale at the show. We plan to use photos of the ‘10’ blocks

in the calendar. Many members have given in their blocks (well done!) and many have said they are working on

them. If you would like your block included on the calendar please let Joan or Jacky have it at the meeting or by

30 th . January.

This is only the deadline for the calendar, if you haven’t made your block by then there is plenty of time before

the show – we do hope everyone will take up the challenge!

February meeting

The trader Running Chicken will be at our meeting in February, so if there is anything you need/want you

will have an opportunity to be tempted – bring your purse!

Hearing loop

We have asked Jan to switch on the hearing loop for our meetings, hopefully it will be helpful.
