Didn't get a sticky label in your Symposium Pack?

This is a post copied from the Manawatu Symposium blog for your info:

Didn't get a sticky label? Don't Panic! See below*

Hi everyone

Isn't it wonderful? The registration was posted last week and I hope you had a delightful time, putting your feet up with a cuppa and reading about all the classes we have on offer. The same information is available on our website and the needs list for each class is posted with the class description so you know exactly what you would need for each class you are considering. There is a button that links to a printer friendly PDF version of the needs list as well and in some cases there are extra photos of class samples. Please remember that the photos are a guide to what the class is about and not necessarily exactly what you will be making in class.

*We are sorry for the confusion about the sticky label mentioned in registration booklet. We don't need your number to be on the envelope and we forgot to take this bit out of the instructions. Your envelopes will be opened as they arrive and all you selections will be entered on our computer under your registration number. The computer will then do its thing and sort everything according to your number. Just like magic!

June Show and Tell

Many thanks to Jane, who kindly took photographs of this month's show and tell.  Hope you enjoy!

Darryl made this cute quilt for her late sister's grandson.

The Kaitaia crew have been making bags from selveges.

Judy is showing off her really cute owl bag.  It lays flat and has a drawstring to pull it into a bag shape.

And Carol, hiding behind a striking graphic table runner.

This is a healing heart quilt made for one of our members who needs an extra bit of love at the moment.

The next three photos are little bits and pieces that Margaret has been using up/clearing out/finishing.

This is Stephanie's block book.  There are pages made of batting inside that can hold blocks-in-progress.

Beatrice makes an interesting block called Princess Mary.  This is a quilt using that block made of multiple fabrics.

And the same block but in only two colours.

And the same Princess Mary block again using three colours.  

This is another of Beatrice's.  Her sewing group had an 'add a round' round robin.  

Ingrid's being doing a lot of foundation piecing lately and this is her own foundation piecing block design.

And last, but not least, Gayleen's quilt, made with two panels and some extra bits and pieces.
