The year is drawing to a close......

Our quilting year is rapidly drawing to a close.  It doesn't mean we stop sewing, for a few of us life gets frantic now preparing for Christmas, finishing off those crafty presents and even looking forward to the end of the school year !?!

A group of our ladies recently attended our last workshop for the year which was conduct by Linda Steele .  Linda is an award winning Quilter based here in Victoria.  She taught our ladies how to create a Crazy Quilting journal cover.   I am sure the skills taught by Linda will be re-utilised in several creations to come from our ladies.

This month our Committee announced the theme for our 2015 Quilt Show - our theme is “Colours of War”, commemorating the 100 year anniversary of the ANZAC landings.  Once again we will have a Challenge based on our theme - with the size to be a maximum of one square metre consisting of 3 layers quilted together.

The Committee have also been busy finalising our list of workshops for next year and will be trialling a new Sit n Sew with extended times to cater for all members being 10am - 10pm.

Our first workshop for the new year will be: Lizzy Allen, Quilt First ,Colour Me Later workshop on 21st March, 2015  members interested in attending this workshop should contact Jenny as soon as possible.
