10 Jul

On 9 July GQ held its AGM which gave the opportunity to reflect on the past years activity which included the making of the signature quilt (which was on display), participating in an enjoyable workshop to learn the art of Japanese folded patchwork and hearing a number of interesting speakers which included the Mother of Africa charity work, Textile traders, Batik’nBeads and how to take good photos of your quilts, to name but a few.

Email from Christine Porter in response to our thank you note:

Thank you for inviting me to speak at your meeting on Saturday. Your hospitality was amazing! I have been trailing around the UK for years, talking to and teaching groups, and I can honestly say, I have never sat down to such a delicious spread as you provided. The welcome I received was very warm and friendly and I was so well looked after. It was a great pleasure meeting your members. Happy Quilting in the future”.
Best wishes

There was a flurry of activity from early morning to prepare the hall and get the food laid out ready for lunch. Great thanks must go to Caroline Leonard who made a delicious lunch and many thanks to those members who contributed with fab desserts. A feast to be proud of!

Three members contributed to the Wendy Surridge Quilt Challenge and after members voted the shield was awarded to Catherine Macey – well done Catherine.

We were delighted that Wendy Surridge could join us to award the prize.
