Change of date

 The Show – now on Thursday 21st. May 2015

Last month we held our A.G.M. and announced the date of our show, the hall and the stands 

were booked ready to go. As the committee left that afternoon Jan, the caretaker, came in to ask 

if we knew of a ‘complication’, the hall was being used for another event on the day we planned 

our show! Enough to say we have now rescheduled the show for May, re-ordered the stands and 

re-booked the hall – please note the change on your membership cards. On a positive note we 

have an extra month to prepare!

The committee was duly re-elected and there was a special thank you to the volunteers who take 

care of the refreshments, the demonstrators and the ‘cake lady’. All these helpers, plus of course 

our members, are what makes Loddon Quilters who we are. Thank you all. 

The committee decided it was time we had a Loddon Quilters badge so, thanks to various money 

raising ventures, when you paid your subscriptions you received your Loddon Quilters badge 

along with your membership card and receipt. We hope you like it.

Jacky will be collecting any subscriptions not yet received and giving out the badges with your 

membership cards.

The Quilt – Last month we gave ideas for the large block we called ‘landscape’. It can go at 

the top, in the middle or at the bottom of the quilt – your choice. If you have made your block 

bring it along to Show and Tell. We are all catching up with our blocks now so if you have 

finished any and not brought them to Show and Tell, bring them along this month. The rest of 

the year will be for catching up, layering up and quilting. We are looking forward to an amazing 

collection of quilts.

We shall be having a Bring and Buy sale this month. Please remember to price and name 

your item – labels with safety pins or stitches. NO pins.

Diana will be running the stall and 10% will go to Loddon Quilters.

Baby quilts. Many of you have already made Xmas baby quilts. We are hoping to have a 

good collection of quilts (18” x 18”) to send to the premature baby unit next month. We shall 

have some fleece available this month if you want to use it for backing. Bring your finished quilts 

along in November for, we hope, a bumper Show and Tell.
