For the first time we organised our meeting in person as well as online, and we even managed (imperfectly) to connect the two!
It was lovely to see so many attending the church hall this morning, even if the facilities were limited… I’m sure to see the quilts in Show & Tell “for real” must have been quite a treat, as well as shopping for fabric, of course.
Online we had about 10 people, and it was greatly appreciated that we offered this option too.
Assumpta spoke about the Passage West Creates shop, that she found herself manager of, with great enthusiasm. By the looks of the display tables they have a lovely selection of handmade items for sale in the shop, as well as brilliant community activities. Definitely worthwhile to check out if you are in the area, or if you are too far, visit their online shop: https://passagewestcreates.ie/
Our summer challenge, using a fat quarter that was sent to our members at the start of summer, had quite a few entries. We will be drawing a winner from all entries and will announce the winner in an email. Some were shown in the hall, others sent to our email address. And the Show & Tell had a wonderful array of quilts, cushions and other items:
Many of us have been making for Christmas, too:
Some links that you may want to have a look at:
- Eilís made her tops (in the slide show above) from mystery instructions by Bonnie Hunter. Find out more about Bonnie’s new upcoming mystery at her website, it is called “Rhododendron Trail: https://quiltville.blogspot.com/p/rhododendron-trail.html
- The “Merry Christmas” box above is from a pattern by Lynette Anderson. Lynette has quite a distinctive style, she has patterns (some free) and has designed fabric lines etc. Find out more at: https://lynetteandersondesigns.typepad.com/
Our next meeting will be the Christmas meeting, planned for 11 December. Keep an eye on your emails to find the details nearer the time. In the mean time the committee will be scratching their heads over quiz questions and other festivities…
