This time of year is also a chance to reflect on the year we have had, our achievements, our losses and our gains. This year at Kilmore Quilters we've experienced a little of everything. Our membership has grown, our workshops and classes have given us new insights and experiences and taught us some wonderful new skills to add to our repertoire of knowledge. Some of us have found a new love for particular techniques and styles of quilting, while others are happy to keep experimenting or stay with a style or technique they enjoy. We've lost cherished members and some have experience the painful loss of family members this year, while others have experienced illness, however through it all we have found plenty of love and support from those around us.
We've experienced a year filled with wonderful gatherings, productive sit n sews, interesting classes with generous teachers, great workshops delivered by our very own members, all in all contributing to a fulfilling and memorable year.
Our last gatherings for the year are Wednesday 10th of December and Tuesday 16th of December.
Merry Christmas, may your festive season bring you love and happiness.
