October Saturday Stitchin'

Saturday Stitchin' for this month is Saturday 17th October
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.

Last year patients were very moved with receiving hand-made items like lovely toilet bags, pencil cases, beanies etc. and that someone went to the trouble to make these things to give to them.
