Tuesday 19th January

Today we had our first general meeting for the year. Our committee is doing a great job and we all appreciate how hard they work.

Helen McNamara gave us a timely reminder of the value of friendship especially in times of loss or illness. Our group is built on friendship and the joy of stitching together.

It is going to be a busy year with lots in the diary already. In house workshops are being organised with the first one on February 9th with Helen Granleese. This will be an ongoing quilt with panels of English Paper Piecing and a number of members have signed up. You will be able to see our progress on the EPP page.

Work continues on the Raffle Quilt and blocks will be given out soon. Next week is Australia Day so we will not be gathering again until February 2nd.

Show and Tell:

Liz, Marie and Fay had items to show us.
