Thursday 18th.May 2017

is the date of our next show in your diary?

We shall be having the first meeting of the show committee this month.

There will be a Christmas theme for our show in May – we know it will be summer but you can never be too early in your preparations. Hopefully we can use your Christmas bunting to decorate a Christmas corner at the show. Of course we hope there will be lots of other quilts and accessories, not on a Christmas theme, to exhibit.

Our raffle quilt has a Christmas theme and has been designed by Chris. She will have the instructions for 20 applique blocks ready this month for 20 volunteers. We will give you the background fabric. We would like the blocks back in January, if possible, February at the latest. All details at the meeting.

The ten year challenge blocks are coming in and how inspirational they are! How many will we have for our show in May? Keep them coming.

Last month we started making Christmas bunting! It can be any shape, size or technique and we gave you some fabric to get started. We hope you will bring your finished bunting and decorate the hall for our December meeting, the bunting is yours to keep – but we would like to see it in December and at the show, please.

Next month is our traditional Christmas celebration. We ask for a small plate of finger food to share – the table usually groans with your ideas of ‘small’. We have a raffle, so if you would like to donate a prize that would be great.  Everyone brings a secret Santa wrapped up to go in Santa’s sack. Our Secret Santa this year is a tree for a tree – a Christmas tree decoration in the shape of a tree, no more than 6” tall, 2D, 3D any technique or medium.

As always, the most important thing to bring is yourself – if you can’t bring any of the other things it doesn’t matter. This is our light hearted Xmas celebration and we all enjoy it!
