Pre-Christmas Party 28th November 2014

​Dear Members and Guests,

This coming Friday night is our festive Christmas meeting where we all bring a delicious plate ​of something to share.

7.15 Meeting Start so that we have time to socialise after the formal part.

There is also a Needle Case swap, bring them wrapped and join in gift opening.

Do bring a Fat Quarter for the Lucky Draw collection.

If you have done something for the Colour Pop challenge we'd love to see it.

Suitcase Appeal - lively modern fabrics please. Black equivalents are really useful too - with just a dash of white, grey or charcoal.

Please bring Show and Tell pieces, get us in the mood with some Christmas hangings.

Productive quilters with their quilt tops

It is always lovely to see the work our fellow members produce. Below are some completed tops, ready for the next stage.

Cheryl has made this especially for her lucky grandson Harry.

Nel has made this for her Nana who is currently in John James Hospital

The four gift quilts have been made out of the suitcase, where a collection of donated fabrics reside. After quilting by the wonderful Kay at Kay's Quilts the quilts will be found a good home.
