   Meeting Thursday 17th. February.

We had cakes last month to celebrate the life of Anna Jenkins and you were very generous and donated £124 to Anna's chosen charity – the Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice. We sent a card to her husband from everyone and his charming, appreciative email is attached – we'll put it on the notice board.
Thank you everyone, Anna would have been delighted.

Have you checked our website – the days are counting down to our first ever show. There will be a lot to do in the coming couple of months; the committee have been busy for several months and now we shall need your help.

Don't forget that Sally and Jenny need your show forms, detailing what you are exhibiting, this month – they have a lot to organise.
Next month they will give you details for delivering your items. Don’t forget a hanging sleeve for larger quilts.
You are responsible for insuring your items, if you are concerned you should consult your home contents insurer.

The ‘cat’ fabrics have been transformed into so many different items, thank you everyone who has finished. Keep up the good work if you haven’t finished yet - we shall have a really good tombola.

Valerie will be asking for help with refreshments at the show. Cakes are always appreciated and we can’t have too many!

The Angel quilt has been assembled and we need volunteers to quilt a seam during the meeting. If everyone stitches a seam, or even part of one, we should finish the quilting on Thursday.
Remember --- Many hands make light work.

Barbara will demonstrate foundation piecing on Thursday afternoon – see attached notes.
