September 2017 Newsletter       Meeting Thursday 21st.September

We have now completed 10 years of Loddon Quilters.

A special thanks to those members who were at the first meeting and are still with us!

Last month we all enjoyed learning about the Dear Jane quilts from Dot’s personal experience and marvelled at the detail in the quilts.

This year we are going to take part in the Christmas tree festival in Sherfield church. A small team has formed to organise our entry and will be looking for help from all members. Our theme is Starlight Express, if you have any ideas please see a member of the team.

Dusty is now busy with her Jane Austen block, which will be part of a quilt made with contributions from many groups in Hampshire. Do have a look at her work, it will be a work of art.

This month we hold our AGM, which we keep as brief as possible, but it is an opportunity to review the last year and look forward to the next. We will be introducing our next quilt challenge which we hope you will all join in.

Subscriptions are due this month and will be £20 for the coming year. We would like to collect all subscriptions in this month, if that is a problem please let us know. We still have a waiting list so if, for whatever reason, you will not be renewing your membership please let us know so that we can offer your place to some else. We do need 60 paid up members just to cover the cost of the hall rental, which is being raised.

Diana will be organising a Bring and Buy sale this month.  Please mark your goods clearly with a price and name and remember NO PINS, safety pins are ok. 10% will be donated to our funds.
