Happy New Year 2014

We had a huge crowd on Tuesday for our first shared lunch of the year. (We have a "Potluck Lunch" on the second Tuesday of each month to celebrate members' recent and imminent birthdays.)  It was a fantastic spread, demonstrating yet again the abundant range of skills in our club.

These are some of the quilts that were displayed this week.

The meeting rooms were abuzz with plans for the year, some involving New Year resolutions relating to UFOs!  Ineke was encouraging members to complete their quilts for the 2013/14 Challenge while June was refining details for some of the classes and workshops being organised for this year. Information on these activities will be included in the next newsletter that will be sent to financial members in early February.  (Now is the time to renew your membership if you haven't already done so.)
