The Show –Thursday 21st. May 2015

See the website for a countdown!

We had a demonstration, hints and tips for layering and quilting a whole quilt last month. This 

was so helpful to everyone in the finishing stages of their quilt, as well as a useful reminder to 

everyone else. 

Diana will have a quilt with hanging sleeve this month so if you need a reminder do take a 

look, the hanging sleeves are so important they need to be 4” deep and almost the width of the 

quilt. Labels are important, they should be sewn on even if they are only temporary paper ones.

Remember that there is a folder with the instructions and samples for all the garden blocks if you 

need a reminder or inspiration. 

Registration forms for the Show are attached to the newsletter. Please remember all 

measurements need to be in inches. We would like everyone to enter something, there is so 

much lovely work being done in the group, this is our chance to celebrate.

We would like forms returned before or at this month’s meeting. 

See Chris (Dobson) or Barbara if you have any queries.

The Show Committee is hard at work organising for the big day. 

 There will be a steward’s rota to sign at this month’s meeting

 Valerie has rotas and lists for help in the café, if you can help please see her. 

 Any donations for the raffle will be gratefully received by Dusty. 

 Diana will have some ideas for tombola prizes 

 We do have enquiries at the show about quilts for sale, so we will make arrangements if 

you want to sell a quilt – more details at the meeting.

We will be telling you about arrangements for delivering your quilts for the show. Jacky will have 

a map to show you where her house is in Sherfield.

Table top sale - At the meeting this month there will be the opportunity to have a small table 

to sell your surplus fabrics, books etc. Each table will cost £5 and can be shared. You keep the 


Library books – we had one volunteer to take a bag of library books, (many thanks) is there 

anyone else? Remember you will have a bag of books to browse through for a whole month! 

Please see Barbara or Pris if you can help.
