Glamorgan Quilters February 2019 Newsletter

 Hello Everyone,

It’s February, the days are getting longer and my daffodils are almost in flower. There are hints of Spring around the corner in spite of the ice and snow! This month we have supplier Red House Quilting from Swansea coming so bring your purses ladies. The shop in Swansea is no longer open, it’s online only, so this is a good opportunity for us to see fabrics and indulge. We will open the doors to visitors to boost the sales for them.

It is “Show and Tell” too so bring along all those lovely things you’ve been working on to share with everyone. I can’t wait to see them all!

Don’t forget to sign up and let Salinder know your preference for the Sally Ablett workshop taking place on 8th March in Ystradowen Village Hall. She will have a list available on Saturday and it must be paid in full and is non-returnable. The cost to members is £35. We will advertise it to non-members if we don’t get enough people signing up.

The theme for the “Wendy Surridge Challenge” this year is “Celebrations” and can be any size up to 36inches x 36inches.

Salinder is busy thinking about a trip to Malvern in May. She will be taking names in March with a £10 non refundable deposit. If anyone is interested or for more information, contact Salinder Gammage on 07996 697158. Email

There is a GOLDWORK/UFO day at Ystradowen village Hall on Sunday 3rd March between 10am and 3.30pm. If anyone is interested in joining them or for more information, contact Salinder Gammage.


The meeting on 9th March will be in Bonvilston Reading Rooms and you will need to bring lunch and a mug. The speaker is Joan Weston of the Ad Hoc Art Company; Website
