Next meeting – 24 July 7.30 pm

Hi everyone!

How is everyone going with their Michael Miller challenge projects? We’re really looking forward to seeing what everyone has been working on. Here’s a little sneak peek of Crystal’s improv circles! So, only another week to stitch down your binding, or whatever else you may need to do to finish, and at the meeting on Thursday we will vote for our favourites. The victor will win a prize donated by Polka Dot Tea – two metres of Cotton Couture solids of the winner’s choice.

And of course there’ll be a vote of a different kind – to elect our new committee. Everyone should have received an email from our returning officer Georgie Kelley asking for nominations. If you haven’t received the info, and/or would like to nominate yourself, or someone else (with their permission), please send an email to Georgie – georgie.kelley@gmail.com.  If you’re not able to make it to the meeting, you can still vote. Just make sure you let Georgie know.

See you on Thursday!

SEWING DAY!!!! SUNDAY 22 JUNE

Our first 2014 sewing day is coming up, will you be joining us? Our last sewing day was so much fun and we are looking forward to this one!

When: Sunday 22 June from 9am to 4pm.
Where: Addicted to Fabric, 25 Dundas Court Phillip.
Cost: Members $4, Non-Members $15.
RSVP: 12 June here in the comments section.
Bring: Your sewing supplies, your own lunch and something to share for morning/afternoon tea (optional).

As mentioned at our last meeting, there is only space for a limited number of machines so we will need to share the spaces through the day if we get more than around 12 people coming along. The shop has plenty of space though so people are welcome to bring hand sewing, basting, binding and cutting projects as well. There will be plenty to do, we can’t wait to see you all in action!

May Meeting and some news!

Danielle Plus

Another month gone by and it’s meeting time again! First up, the meeting details:

This month we are going to have a BYO project night.

We are expecting to have a large show and tell as there will quite a few quilts that were exhibited in Berry to get through (those who exhibited, please do bring your quilt along).

Also, we have received the Michael Miller Challenge fabrics to distribute so we’ll have those to cut and hand out.

With all that will be happening, we thought it would be good timing for a BYO sewing night – bring your own hand work project to work on. Anything you can work on by hand, for example some binding or hand piecing, quilting, or perhaps it could be a good opportunity to get those labels on your quilts!

Now, onto the exciting part, our news!!!

Addicted to Fabric in Phillip have very kindly offered to host our Guild for sewing days every two months on a Sunday beginning on June 8th EDIT: DUE TO UNFORSEEN CIRCUMSTANCES, THE FIRST SEWING DAY WILL BE JUNE 22 FROM 9AM TO 4PM. We will then be there the second Sunday of August, October and December. We’re very grateful to A2F for allowing us to use their facilities and also really excited to be having regular sewing days. There will be more information at the meeting, looking forward to seeing you all there!

April Meeting

Tomorrow is our April meeting, where has the time gone? Amira is going to show us how she uses her portable design ‘wall’. We will be meeting at the Civic library at 7:30pm. Bring your show and tell, name tag and something to work on.

Looking forward to catching up!
