Finally some rain after many dry months. Not enough to keep members away from patchwork though. Sorry we have missed two weeks of posts but all three of us have been elsewhere.
Wilga gave us another lovely tutorial today, this time on Chenille work. As well as how to create chenille Wilga has also demonstrated a chenille bag for us to try. I will put the directions onto the Workshop Page.
The Zone Day bus has been ordered and the cost will be $15 added to the entry fee of $10. So would members please start bringing in your $25 ASAP.
Our dear old friend and former member, Muriel Bowler, is relocating with her daughter to Queensland. She has left behind nine boxes of stash which will be available to buy via donations next week as a Trash and Treasure Stall. Proceeds will go to the Hospital Auxillary.
Sounds like our president, Linda, has had a cold but lovely time in Tasmania. We look forward to seeing her back amongst us. There is a write up by Linda on our Travelling Members page and in the Newsletter.
