£1500 raised for our charities!

 

Another amazing show! Well done everyone. A big thank you to you all for contributing in so many ways to the success of the show and making all the hard work so worthwhile. We hope you enjoyed it.

Please pass on our thanks to all the men folk who manfully reached, stretched and pulled to help get the show together.

 

Photos of all the quilts are on the website in the photo gallery, why not have a look, you need to search for ‘May 2017’. We also have a video you can watch during the meeting.

 

Please collect bunting and 10 challenge blocks at this month’s meeting.

 

We had a lot of positive feedback from visitors. We shall be having a debrief of the show committee, but if you noticed anything we did particularly well or something that could be tweaked for another time please let a member of the committee know -  it’s your show and you may have noticed something we didn’t.

 

This month we shall be resting on our laurels and celebrating before the committee plans a new challenge! We will have show and tell as usual, in case anyone has had the energy to finish something since the show.

 

Did anyone lose a pair of reading glasses at the show?
