November 2018 Newsletter           Meeting Thursday 15th, November



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 www.pinterest.co.uk/pin/177329304055995854/?lp=true


Secret Santa this year is a covered notebook, no bigger than A6 (approximately 6” x 4”)

If you want help or ideas try the following links or ‘Google’ handmade fabric covered notebooks.

Chequered Dresden Plate

If you have made a chequered plate bring it along for a bumper Show and Tell – even if you have brought it before. Thanks to Dot for her guidance, we have enjoyed learning this new technique.

           

Row quilts

We would like a Show and Tell in January of ALL the row quilts, however far you have got. We’ll remind you again in the January newsletter.
