Newsletter                    Meeting Thursday 15 th March 2018
This month our Row Quilt technique will be English piecing. There will be demonstrations if these are
new techniques for you – or you need a reminder.
Our committee theme is Out and About and this month is beach huts and seashore. Remember that you can
adapt what we suggest to suit what you want to do and follow your own theme, it is a very flexible
challenge. Blocks can be 8” or 4”, or you can work on a strip.
We have Bondaweb for sale at the meeting (£1 for 12”) – see Joan or a member of the committee.
We had a good display of rows last month, keep bringing them in and displaying them.
The Scrappy box – thank you for all the donations to the scrappy box, lots of members make use of it.
PLEASE make sure that any fabric you put in the box has NO PINS or needles in it, members do
‘rummage’ and points can be dangerous!
Lost glasses – did you lose your glasses at Loddon Quilters last month? A pair was found, are they
