 Newsletter Meeting Thursday 19th. February

The Show –Thursday 21st. May 2015

See the website for a countdown!

We had an inspiring show and tell when we saw how many Garden quilts have been made or 

are on their way. Well done everyone they will make a wonderful display at the show. Some 

members even have time to make other things, there is always so much to inspire at our meetings.

We had a demonstration of quilt as you go last month and there will be a demonstration, hints 

and tips for layering and quilting a whole quilt this month.

Remember that there is a folder with the instructions and samples for all the garden blocks if you 

need a reminder or inspiration.

Registration forms for the Show are attached to the newsletter so please think about what 

you are going to enter. Please remember all measurements need to be in inches. We would like 

everyone to enter something, there is so much lovely work being done in the group, this is our 

chance to celebrate. We would like forms returned before or at the March meeting. See Chris 

Dobson or Barbara if you have any queries.

The Show Committee is now hard at work organising for the big day. 

• Any donations for the raffle will be gratefully received by Dusty. 

• Valerie has rotas and lists for help in the café, if you can help please see her. 

• We shall need stewards on the day and Jan will be compiling rotas. 

• We have some cushion pads we would like to make covers for, if you can help, please see 


At the meeting this month there will be a downsizing sale of fabric, books, notions. 10% 

of the proceeds will go to Loddon Quilters.

Gentle reminder – our meeting is from 11.30 – 4.00pm. The hall is opened at 11.15am for the 

committee to come in and get organised. Please give us time to get sorted before you come in!
