****Loddon Quilters' second Show – Thursday 18th.April 2013****
3 meetings to go.................

A Happy New Year to all Loddon Quilters.

We had a great start to the festive season at our December meeting, thank you for joining in and
making it such fun and so inspirational. It was such a good idea to open our secret Santa door
hangings so that we could all share the results, amazingly there were no two alike. The photos
will be on the website as soon as Joan gets back from her travels.


We really have to get down to business now as April will come round quickly. We have emailed
registration forms for the Show in April. We would like everyone to enter something, there is so
much lovely work being done in the group, this is our chance to celebrate.

Forms should be returned by the February meeting , sooner if possible!

Show items

This month we would like to have a grand display of all the items you have made so far for the
tombola, the raffle or the Christmas table etc.. During the year we have been making
− leaves,
− pincushions,
− houses,
− Christmas items and
− everyone had a piece of fabric to start off something for the tombola. (If you haven't
had a piece of fabric see Barbara as she has some left).

Please bring in anything you have finished or need help with.
