October 2013 Newsletter Meeting Thursday 17th.October 

Welcome to our new members, we hope you will enjoy Loddon Quilters. As always September 

was a busy meeting, including AGM, demonstrations, bring and buy and show and tell.

Jacky will be collecting subscriptions for the coming year at the meeting (£18 this year). We 

would like all subscriptions in this month, if that's a problem please let us know.

The Bring and Buy was a very successful recycling event with lots of 'brings' and lots of 'buys'!

Thanks to Diana for organising it.

Thanks to Chris and Jacky for their fascinating and informative demonstrations on quilting and in 

particular transferring designs ready to quilt. We were all inspired and we will make sure we have 

some marking equipment next month (November) from our trader.


Our library will be opening this month, thanks to all who have donated books and to Jan for 

organising it. We shall have limited books to begin with so only one book per member, at a time, 

please. There will be a signing out – and back in – book. We hope you will find it useful – and 


The minutes of our AGM meeting are on the website if you missed it. As well as the look 

back at the year we looked forward to our new year plans. 

We hope members are excited at the idea of another 'Loddon' quilt. We plan to use 

different techniques and irregular blocks. We shall be introducing it over the next months, so that 

you will have time to plan, and we will be starting the first block in the new year.

This month Jenny Hornsey will be demonstrating a reversible block. If you want to have 

a go see the attached list from Jenny of what you need. We hope everyone will try a block, it 

sounds fun and we have plenty of scrap materials.

If you want to try the technique, but don't want to use the block we will be pleased to accept them 

and make them up into a quilt. If 20 people make a block and donate it we can make a small quilt, 

– so have a go!

Our Christmas secret santa this year is a postcard. For those of you who are 

new to postcards, or want some inspiration, Anne Brock will be demonstrating in
