Snippets from the Newsletter

These are some snippets from the newsletter with important info and dates for you!

October Retreat – 8th, 9th and 10th October - This is a fun weekend away from 10am Friday to after lunch Sunday where all you have to worry about is your quilting, eating, sleeping and generally having fun. It will cost you $20 plus your share of the food. You need to pay to seal your place. It will be first in first served. So you can either forward your cheque to Ingrid or pay her at the August meeting when you will be advised of your share of the food.

Not quite the view from retreat - but it's still like having a holiday!

Christmas Party/Luncheon – Only a few months now until Christmas. So here is a date and a bit of information to put in your diary. Tuesday 23rd November, Kingston House, $15.00 per head. Beryl and her team are starting preparations for this fun event. More information in the September Newsletter.

Fat Quarter Block of the Month – Hope you are all going well putting your last blocks together. At the August meeting Suzanne will have her book and we can all bring our blocks and have a group meeting to get ideas for setting these blocks out. We are planning to have the big reveal of quilt tops at the September meeting. Suzanne has a prize for the person with the least amount of pieces left over and we will have a mini-exhibition for all the Club members to vote for viewer’s choice who will win a copy of the book! Get sewing, everyone!

Here's a couple of my blocks from the Fat Quarter Block of the Month.  I decided to do two quilts the same, but in different colours (what was I thinking!!)

See you all on the 24th August for our next meeting!
