May 2013 Show and Tell and some newsletter stuff.

MAY’S SATURDAY STITCH AND CHAT was a great day for our first one.  We had half a dozen regular members, a couple of members who can’t make the Tuesday meetings and some brand newbees.  There was a 11 year girl who left all fired up to start making quilts!  Fantastic to see some beginners getting enthused.  Let’s hope they come back in June.

Saturday 15th of June will see us at Cherry Park House from 11am till 4pm to stitch and chat and hopefully help out some beginner quilters.  Bring your own lunch and $1 to pay for tea and coffee and room hireage.  All skill level's welcome - bring along a friend who's never quilted and lets get them started!

Spring Retreat will be held at Lonsdale Park, Friday October 4th till Sunday October 6th.  Give your name to Judith or Steph E.

REMINDER!!  July’s meeting is to be held the FIFTH Tuesday of the month.  That will be Tuesday 30th of July.  This is to avoid a conflict with Taupo Symposium.  Hopefully we will have an enthusiastic round up of Symposium by those members who attended.  We will also be having the Community Quilts sewing day.  This is where we work on quilts that are given to the community, so bring your sewing things and lots of enthusiasm and we’ll see how many quilts we can get done. 

Darryl's quilt made for a challenge.  She's used the Storm at Sea block and all the orange blocks tell a story.

Steph's been making a really big bag to hold all her sewing bits.

Donella's quilt has lots of special bits of embroidery and crochet etc. 
Isn't Diane's  I spy quilt fun?!

This is Helen's first quilt, she was asking for help on how to quilt it.

Love these funky aprons of Alison's.

Carol's getting in early for Santa!

Stand still Ingrid!  It has a penguin in the centre for her St John juniors.  A penguin is their emblem. 
See you next month!
