November Meeting Day

Before our November meeting we had a visit from SAPOL's DVU co-ordinator Chris Lanchester, where we handed over 21 charity quilts for his unit to disperse. He gave a brief talk about what the unit does, and how they help families.

Vietnam Veteran's Quilting Group Visit

Last Wednesday, we had a visit from a quilting group consisting of Vietnam Vet's, and/or their partners.  They had some lovely quilts to show, and we also dazzled them with some of our own!

We had an enjoyable day with morning tea and lunch, lots of ideas taken and swapped.
 Busy, busy, busy.....
 Show and Tell laid out to see.
Laid out the completed Fan Blocks for the Raffle Quilt, looking good ladies!
