Though our meeting was smaller than usual, my was it mighty!!
Our shop was Lismore Quilt Company. It was their first visit to our meeting!
Jane started the meeting with some announcements. She attended the national AGM in Galway where a new committee was elected, and the motion to start a young people’s IPS was unanimously passed. We’re excited to see what happens!
Our tenth block for the Block of the Month was debuted, the Inverted Star:
Our Christmas Challenge was announced. Jane passed out three different sized circles of fabric to members. Their Christmas Challenge is to include at least two of those circles in your Christmas decoration. More details will be given in a blog post that will come out later in the week.
Next was our Show and Tell.
Sara Wilson showed us her Jane Austin Block of the Month that she participated in:
Sheila Keane showed us her Christmas Decoration using the log cabin block and some ribbon:
