June  2013 Newsletter Meeting Thursday  20th.June  

During the May meeting a representative from Sue Ryder was presented with a cheque for £1760 from Loddon Quilters and £387 for Pris' afternoon teas. A photographer from the Basingstoke Gazette came and we became famous/infamous when a photo and report appeared in the Gazette on Thursday 6th. June.

Even a month after the Show members were able to bring quilts for Show 'n Tell. Our youngest contributor yet showed the present she had made for Granny. There is so much exciting work going on that a walk around the tables cannot fail to be inspiring and members are very generous sharing their expertise so don't be afraid to ask. If you see something you would like demonstrated please let us know and we will arrange it. Sally will be doing a demonstration for us in July – details to come. 

If you want to know 'how to' check out You Tube - there is a video for almost everything you want to do – beware, it is a time waster/consumer as it's easy to be distracted onto things you didn't know you wanted to know! If you find any other good web sites do let us know and we can share them.

The Quilters' Guild has a new web site , it's much more user friendly than the old one and you can find lots of information even if you are not a member. The Guild is open to everyone for an annual fee and they do need support to keep going. If you go to York you may have time to visit the Quilt museum there. You can shop online at the web site, a useful stop especially if you are looking for a 'quilting' gift.
