 Newsletter   Meeting Thursday 16th.March


It was almost a full house last month! As always show and tell was inspiring, so please make sure all that work is in our show. Loddon Quilters shows have built up a reputation for an excellent show of work showcasing all techniques of patchwork and quilting in so many different forms.


Thursday 18th. May is show day


There is still time to enter your work for the show. We need your quilts. It doesn’t matter if your quilt is unfinished, it can be ‘work in progress’.


We will talk through the registration form again at our meeting and there will be help at hand if you need it, bring the details of the items you would like to show.


This is your show and we hope everyone will find something to show.


This month Pris will be demonstrating different ways of labelling your quilts.

Chris will demonstrate how to put that all important sleeve on your quilt for hanging – all quilts need a hanging sleeve.


Strawberry jam – do you make strawberry jam? Can you spare a jar for the café on show day? If so please let Valerie know.


Reminders -

The 10 year challenge – have you made your block yet?

We have a great display of ‘10’ blocks and we would like even more! If you haven’t made yours yet there is still time. The challenge is to make a 10” quilted block representing 10 – of anything.

Joan and Jacky will arrange their display, so no need to put yours on your registration form, make sure Joan or Jacky have it.


Thank you to the members who took Linus quilts to layer and quilt. They are all for a good cause and many hands make light work. We shall be displaying them altogether in the show. Please let us have the finished quilts back by April, at the latest.
