It’s Christmas!

Christmas meeting

This is our Christmas celebration.

When you arrive please put your secret Santa (a covered notebook - wrapped,) into Santa’s bag; they will be given out later in the afternoon. We will open our secret Santas for everyone to see the amazing ideas members have – it doesn’t have to be complicated to be effective.


The raffle – everyone will be given a free raffle ticket during the meeting but we do not need raffle prizes this year, we will provide them.

Finally – and perhaps most importantly – a small plate of Christmas food would be much appreciated. There will be no charge for refreshments this month.

Lunch will be at 12.30, so no one need bring a separate lunch, we are sure there will be plenty left for those who come later – the tables are usually groaning!

Don't worry if you can't bring/forget any of the above, it’s you we want to see at our Christmas meeting, so be sure to come along and we can help you out.

We will have a few fun (we hope) activities for you to join in with – if you want to……

We shall round off our day with a Christmas Show and Tell, anything you have made on a Christmas theme.

The show –Thursday 16th. May 2019

Last month many of you took fabric to make friendship star blocks for the show raffle quilt. If you have made one (or more!) please bring them along and pin them up on the stands. Agna will have more fabric this month if you want to join in and make a block.

Registration of quilts or other items for the show – a form is attached.

Please be accurate with your measurements – inches NOT centimetres – and note the largest size we can hang. See Chris or Barbara with any queries.

We hope to have a stunning display of row quilts, don’t forget to put them on the form and make a note it’s a row quilt.

Forms should be returned in January, if possible, February at the latest.

Name badges

We have quite a few new members and it does help everyone if you can all wear a name badge. It doesn’t have to be complicated, just your name on a piece of fabric with a safety pin on the back. If you want inspiration try this Pinterest link
