 Newsletter Meeting Thursday 21st. November 

We had almost a full house in October, including some new members, whom we hope enjoyed 

the meeting. Please try and remember to wear your name badges, it is a useful memory jogger!

The library got off to a good start last month with lots of books signed out. Please remember to 

sign them back in when you return them this month. Books can be returned any time during the 

meeting but please wait until 2 o'clock to sign them out so that everyone has a chance to browse.

Thanks to Jenny Hornsey who demonstrated how to make a reversible block. Lots of 

members were working on their blocks during the meeting, if you have finished your block/mat 

do bring it along for Show and Tell. If you don’t want your blocks please donate them and we 

will use them for a charity quilt.

 'Loddon' quilt. We unveiled the different techniques and irregular blocks that will make 

up our next quilt. We shall be following a theme of 'Gardens', but if you want to have a different 

theme or an additional (!) theme we will give you as much help as possible, just let us know what 

your theme is. In December we will show you our first block, based on log cabin, and in January 

we will demonstrate it.

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 this month. 

Check out these websites for ideas, or Google 'patchwork quilted postcards', there are so many 


We shall be having fabric, notions and goodies for sale from Lady Sew 

and Sew, this month, so bring your purses and cheque books!

In Staples they have Pilot Frixion pens for sale. They are good for marking fabric and the marks 

disappear when heated/ironed.


There are a few of the super Loddon Show calendars for 2014 left if you missed them last month 

and would like one. They cost £5 and will be on sale from Joan. Thanks to Joan for producing the 

calendar using the photos taken at the Show in April.

Our December meeting – 19th. December is our Christmas 

celebration. For our new members our Christmas meeting is fun! We ask you to bring a 

secret Santa and a small raffle prize, but no Christmas cards this year. The secret Santas (this year 

it is a postcard) go in a box and are given out in the afternoon. Everyone is given a raffle ticket 

and we draw the tickets until all the prizes have been won.

Please bring a small plate of food to share. Lunch will be taken to 12.30, so no one need bring a 

separate lunch or starve while waiting for 'tea' and we are sure there will be plenty left for those 

who come later – the tables are usually groaning!

We will remind you of what to bring in the newsletter next month.
