Our Last Evening for the Year

We had a lovely social evening for the end of 2007. At our Annual General Meeting we lost 3 committee members but gained 5 - what a blessing to have new members and previous committee members coming back to run the Club. Next year will be a busy year, with Tote and Gloat in May and Celebration of Quilts in August. Two big shows that will need the extra (wo)man power and ideas.
Here is a photo of some of the supper that we partook in - so much food!
We also had a suitcase sale. Not only was there fabric, quilting magazines, laces, 'decorations' that people had made, but crockery and plants. I think that everyone had a successful time.
The library was also well patronised because members could have books out over the Christmas period, so there is a 2 month loan.
Wish you all a safe and Happy Christmas
See you in the New Year.

Last Club Meeting for 2007

Monday 26th November is the last Club meeting for the year. Meeting starts at 7:30pm at the Wesley Church, Broadway Avenue, Palmerston North. All visitors are welcome. Members will be able to collect their newsletter.
We are having a 'suitcase' sale where members bring anything sewing related that they wish to sell. There is no commission and the seller sets the price (it could be open to negotiation).
We are also having an 'Inchies' swap. These are one inch square fabric art works - a very addictive and very easy to make lots.
Members are requested to bring a small plate of supper food to share and non-perishable food for the Foodbank.
Library. Remember to return library books and then choose many more to take out for 2 months until the January meeting.

Material Girls Quilts

Photo of 4 quilts and tops the Material Girls assembled and partly quilted on one weekend from pre-made and homemade squares of ANYTHING from their scrap bags.
We accepted all offerings and then sorted them into groups of vaguely similar colours, e.g. blue, darks and novelty.
It was fun and gave a (surprisingly) good result.
Donated to the RCQ relief quilt stash.
