   Meeting Thursday 20th. October


Last month we began our tenth year of Loddon Quilters, Joan and Jacky reminded us about the ten year challenge – a 10” quilt block depicting anything 10, there have been some original ideas for blocks. Don’t worry if someone has ‘done’ your idea, everyone will look different when it’s finished.


We had our AGM last month, an opportunity to reflect on all we had done in the past year and to look forward to the coming year. We hope to have a show in May, so we shall be looking to set up a show committee this month and start planning.


The Bring and Buy sale was a success and gave many a chance to exchange fabrics. Thanks, Diana.


Subscriptions will be held at £18 for this year. We would like all subscriptions in this month, if that is a problem please let one of the committee know.


This month we will be making bunting! If you would like to make some Christmas bunting we can give you a little help. We hope you will bring your finished bunting and decorate the hall for our December meeting. We’ll have some samples at the meeting if you need ideas.


Our Secret Santa this year will be a tree for a tree – a Christmas tree decoration in the shape of a tree, no more than 6” tall. More details of our Christmas meeting next month.


Polite reminder – we love your enthusiasm but our meeting starts at 11.30 am. The hall is open at 11.15 for the committee to come in and get organised, please give us time!


We will try to remember to put out baking parchment for use on the ironing boards, especially when you are using Bondaweb. If the glue gets onto the iron or ironing board the next person using it will not be happy with glue on their work. Please remind us if we forget!


We have had some good suggestions for future meetings, let us know if you have any ideas, we will consider all ideas and do our best to implement them.
