July meeting

Our Jolly June Jubilee workshop was a great success and we all enjoyed the challenge of
something different. The hall was a buzz of activity as everyone worked on projects for the show
tombola – including bags of various sorts, sewing purses, pincushions and houses.

Many thanks to Anne who helped and inspired many members to have a go at her beautiful
flowers.
Pris' houses were a great success and there should be a whole town of them for the tombola!
All this activity needed feeding – not a problem with the table groaning with cakes, many thanks
to all who brought cakes.
Check out the website for photos of the day.

We will put up a table for you this month to show your projects
– and inspire others.

If you missed the workshops, never mind, we will put out the displays again this month and will
be on hand to demonstrate/help/encourage.

Pris and Jackie have finished their Olympic quilts and brought them in for show and tell. Pris
had made hers into a smart quag (quilt in a bag) and Jackie had chosen paralympic logos for her
quilt. Remember your quilt does not have to be red, white and blue or have sports appliqued on
the blocks – just put your blocks together as a quilt, place mat, bag or whatever, it is a learning
opportunity.

You will have time to get on with your blocks and projects over the next couple of months: we
know this is the holiday season, even if the weather doesn't, so July and August are 'catching up'
months

Please remember that the hall doors open at 11.30a.m. and members are not allowed in
before then – there is now a coffee shop in the village, at the post office, if you are too early.

It is helpful if you can wear your name badge – ladies, and gentlemen, of a certain age can't
always put a name to a face!- and it is helpful for new members.
