June Meeting - by Angela


As this was the first meeting of our “New Year” after the AGM Julia welcomed three new members to our group, Anne, Joan and Gill.  They are not totally unknown to us as we could recognise them from visits to our open meetings.
 
Julia went through the notices for coming meetings with reminders and a possible change for the September meeting – see the website please. She also relayed thanks from the Royal Marsden for all the quilts they have received via Project Linus – and thanks to Liz for all her coordination work for Linus.
 
On to our evening’s mystery activity: making signs for our exhibitions, this year a mini one on Tuesday evening, November 17th.  Tables had been set out all round the hall and soon it was a hive of activity – tracing, cutting, ironing and stitching – not to mention the chatting and coffee!
 
Thanks to all the committee who had done lots of preparation in advance to get us to work productively straight away. Soon signs to direct to the Quilts, the Refreshments and “do not touch” were taking shape.
 

Time passed very quickly with all the activity and soon it was time to check out what the other tables had been making. Then finally a Show and Tell – inspiring us to go home and do some more sewing!
