Marvelous May

It's been a very busy May for many of our group.

We started out with a fantastic two day workshop run by Fay Winthers.  This workshop was called Fireworks.  During the workshop the ladies who attended learnt how to design and create their own foundation pieced blocks.   Can't wait to see the finished quilts ladies.

Our AGM was held in the middle of the month with a small change in committee.  The wonderful Wendy has now taken a well deserved retirement from the committee.  She has served us very well during her many years on the committee in a variety of roles.   We welcomed Kris onto the committee, she will certainly bring with her some fresh ideas and enthusiasm.

Our wonderful committee spent the early part of the month preparing for our retreat.  They did a stellar job, a great time was had by all who attended.

We were well fed, for the most we managed to keep nice and warm and all of us managed to get a serious amount of work done.   Some of the ladies even ventured out for some bush walking and fortunately managed to find their way home.

All in all the atmosphere was friendly, sharing and full of laughs, I'm sure many will return next year.
