May Meeting A.G.M. - by Jane M

Our meeting on Tuesday 20th May was the A.G.M. 

The Treasurer reported that our finances are generally healthy, but to keep pace with rising costs, annual membership has been increased from £24 to £27. 

The Chairwoman reported the groups' activities and achievements during the year. Helen was standing down as Events Co-Ordinator, Pat K was elected in her place. 

Julia thanked Helen and the other committee members for their hard work and support and welcomed Pat to the Committee.

Voting was held for the charity we are to support this year. E Bear's Attic in Hamsey Green was selected as our local charity for 2014-2015. We were given our first look at the charity quilt we have all made in soft pastels, to be raffled at the Exhibition. A fabric exchange ran throughout the evening, allowing many to lose unwanted or unloved fabric and patterns and inspiring others towards new projects. After frantic buying and selling, tea, coffee and biscuits were served allowing members to catch up with each other.

Finally a Show and Tell session of some beautiful work (which will hopefully be in the Exhibition) was shown. There were several quilts for Project Linus which meant our contributions as a group now exceed 200!! 

Well done everyone.
