  Meeting Thursday 15th.October

Last month we had our AGM. If you missed it, or want to refresh your memory (!) there is a copy of the report on the website.

We had an almost full house, it was good to see so many members in the refurbished hall. We enjoyed the light, the sockets and, of course, the loos (pity one was already out of action!) Thanks to Diana for running another successful bring and buy sale.


Almost all the subscriptions are in; Jacky will be collecting this month if you haven’t paid yet. We hope some prospective members will be visiting this month, we know you will make them welcome, we are noted as a friendly group.

Show and Tell

As always this is such an inspiration. You don’t need to have finished to ‘show and tell’, remember the journey is as interesting to your fellow quilters as the finished item. It was good to see Doris’ finished quilt following her ‘work in progress’ at the show.

Sunflower quilt.

The sunflower quilt for St. Michael’s Hospice is now underway. Thank you to all our volunteers who are busy working on sunflower blocks for the quilt. We would like the blocks back by the November meeting. We plan to have some spare blocks to make into cushions. See Chris if you have queries.

Secret Santa

This year it will be a small gift container, details at the meeting.

Future plans

Thank you to those members who have made suggestions or are willing to do demonstrations/workshops of different techniques, we are really pleased to be able to include them in our programme for next year. We still have space if you have an idea, would like some help with a technique or want to make a particular item. See a member of the committee or pop a note in the suggestions box.
