****Loddon Quilters' second Show – Thursday 18th.April 2013****

2 meetings to go.................


We have emailed registration forms for the Show. We would like everyone to enter something, there is so much lovely work being done in the group, this is our chance to celebrate.

Please return your forms at this month's meeting.

We had a great show of items made so far for the show tombola etc. – pincushions, leaves and houses to name but a few.
The main quilt for the raffle is coming together and we have enough blocks to make a lap quilt as well. Thanks to everyone who made a house block.

We would like to see what you made with your Olympic blocks, even if you only made one block. We would like to have an Olympic block Show and Tell this month, please bring yours along even if its not finished...............

Show time workshops
This month we would like to have a workshop meeting. Some members have asked for ideas of items to make with the fabric they were given last year. The idea is to use the fabric to make something for the tombola, raffle or sales table. You can add some of your own fabric and/or wadding, all ideas are acceptable.
If you are having difficulty thinking of what to make we will have some workshops at the meeting this month to give you ideas – hopefully we will end the meeting with lots of extra items.

We would like to make some bunting for the show, so we need a variety of fabric. If you have a spare piece of fabric, at least A4 (11x8) we could use it. Diana has a 'wiggly' rotary cutter and then we can attach them to a tape.
