* Your lunch
The club provides :

*Lee and Amiee have spent many hours getting the quilt blocks, fabric, borders, etc together so you can just pick up a package and sit down to sew the quilts up. We hope we get a good turn out so we can clear the blocks up and make storing them a little easier and tidier.

September Saturday Stitchin'

Saturday Stitchin' for this month is Saturday 19th September
Every 3rd Saturday of the month at the Awapuni Community Hall in Newbury St from 9.30am – 4.00pm several Rose City Quilters members have been meeting for a day of sewing, chatting, eating and drinking. This is a great day to bring UFO’s and to pick up tips on binding, borders, colours and so on. The hall has heaps of light and plenty of tables to spread out on. There’s also a table tennis table, which is ideal for basting large quilts. You need to bring a cup/mug, your lunch and $2.00. If you want to join any Saturday Stitchin’ please contact Robin Huxtable, phone 358 5117 or just turn up.
