A busy day with a lot of members present. Firstly Wilga gave us her monthly workshop, this time on how to use our new plastic applique templates. We had a bit of fun tracing shapes to make flowers, fountains, butterflies and other pictures. Wilga also gave us some tips on using freezer paper in a number of interesting ways. It looks like the expensive templates will be well used.
Elizabeth brought in the donation quilt after quilting and some volunteers got to work with needle and thread to sew down the binding. It is nice when lots of members have a hand in making a charity quilt. This one will be donated on our Zone Day in September.
We also made some decisions about celebrating our 25th year as a group. A special lunch will be held on 28th October at the Harwood Hotel.
