Glamorgan Quilters March 2018 Newsletter

Hello Everyone,

Now we can all travel again after all that snow, we have Sandie Lush coming to speak on Saturday. What a treat to have something to look forward to after such cold weather. I hope she brings a wonderful selection of quilts for us to admire.

Marj and Julia are planning to bring some fabric to sell for the RNLI this month so bring some cash if you are interested in having a look.

Our speaker for April, Sallieanne Harrison, now can’t make it as she has an operation scheduled for then. Never mind, we will put our heads together and think of something to entertain everyone and book Sallieanne for another time.

Salinder will have the list for the Malvern trip taking place on Thursday 17th May. She will be taking names this month with a £10 non refundable deposit. If anyone is interested, or for more information, contact Salinder Gammage T: 01443 224550 or 07996 697158. Email


The GQ Sissix machine and dies will be available to use. If you would like to bring along any fabric to cut please do, but we will have some bits and pieces for you to have a go.

If you are making an entry for the Wendy Surridge Challenge  please see Isobelle to add your name to the list. The theme is “Animal Crackers”! It can be anything at all animal, fish, bug or bird related and should be a small hanging no bigger than A2 or 16.5 x 23 inches.

Please continue to wear your GQ badges ladies and I will try and remember mine too! We have a few new members who don’t our know names yet.
