   Meeting Thursday 16th. July

Last month we celebrated our successful quilt show, including presenting a cheque for £1200 to 

Helena, from St. Michael’s Hospice. We also sent a cheque for £500 to the Alzheimer’s Society.

Photos of all the quilts are on the website in the photo gallery. There was an account of our show 

in the Loddon Link magazine, turn to page 43. Was it your quilt in the photo?

Many thanks to Chris Dobson for bringing her quilts for us to have a private viewing – what a 

treat we had. 

We also had our usual array of quilts at Show and Tell showing just how hard working and 

inspirational you all are, even a month after our show!
