The weather had turned wintry, the temperatures had plummeted, meaning the the numbers were down a little at our evening Club Night. But plenty of keen quilters put their coats on, braved the elements and came along.
I love the Show and Tell component of the meeting, always the highlight, I feel. It’s so nice to see what the members have been working on, and to come away with new ideas. I was in the queue too waiting to have my moment on the stage, so didn’t have time to take notes as to who had made what, I’m sorry to say. Here are a few snaps of the quilts hanging in the Supper Room.

Amazing hydrangea quilt
Instead of a speaker this month we had presentations from the three local quilt shops, we are so fortunate to have three passionate quilt shops in our local area. It was gadget night, and what a variety there was, each shop owner brought along completely different items to show and explain. There was everything from rulers, stencils, frames for FMQ, an amazing super slim light box and photo fabric to use in the printer. Lots of useful low key items too, such as spray starch, iron cleaner, (I definitely need a bottle of that), double eyed needles, (who would have known they exist) and the good old Hera marker which has been around for a while, but another item I could well use.
It was a very interesting night indeed, and well worth braving the conditions to attend.
