 September Newsletter

Meeting Thursday 17thSeptember 

Our August meeting was in the smaller Liddell Hall and made a change from our usual venue of the main hall. It was a cosy room with plenty of light and we enjoyed the new experience of hand sewing only. We shall all look forward to our meeting this month in the newly refurbished hall, complete with new toilets! 

September is the beginning of our ninth year of Loddon Quilters – can you believe it! - and we shall be having our AGM. The agenda is

  • Election of the committee
  • Report for 2014 -15
  • Financial report 2014 -15
  • Future plans
  • Any other business

This may sound very formal but rest assured it is not – and it doesn’t last very long! 


Jacky will be collecting subscriptions this month, £18 for the year. We think this is very good value and hope you agree and will be joining us for another year. 

Bring and Buy

We shall be holding a Bring and Buy sale this month. Items for sale should be clearly marked with the seller’s name and the price, attached with a safety pin, no ordinary pins please. Loddon Quilters will take 10% of each sale. Any unsold items should be taken back at the end of the afternoon. This is always an enjoyable experience as we exchange our unwanted items for someone elses!!


Show and Tell

We didn’t have Show and Tell last month as space was restricted so we are ready for a bumper one this month. It is so inspiring to see the lovely work, of all shapes and sizes, produced by our members, so don’t be shy.
