Winter, Summer ?????Spring

Narelle has asked what has happened to Spring?????
Where did it disappear to? Has it been swallowed by climate change?? Just wait girls we'll probably be reaching for a jumper in September.

As long as it does not affect our sewing habits too much should we really worry.
When you come along to our next sewing day, please bring along an empty container or box.
Spring Fever has hit the house where Ruth lives and she is giving away lots of goodies.

Hope there has been some progress on the Art Quilts.
See you at The Tin Shed come September

Important Dates

Some upcoming activities of note are:

The Mt Perry Fine Arts Annual Art Exhibition is happening on the weekend beginning Friday 23 October. There is a Textile Art Category , Section 10. "Creative Collection - Your Passion"

This is sponsored by The Mt Perry Health Centre.

Conditions of entry: Must include 1/8 in blood red, no bigger than 1m x 1m and may be for sale.

Entry Fee is $2 and the prizemoney is $50 for First.

The theme is based on the year of the collection denoting blood collection for donations. This explains why RED has to be included.

So come on girls we can't let there be only one entry from our Health Centre employee.

Entry forms are available at the Community Mail Centre and have to be lodged by Friday 16 October.

The following weekend , October 31 and November 1 Ruth is attempting to organise a dyeing workshop for you and a strips and curves workshop for that weekend with a sleepover of course. More details will be available at our next sewing day. September 2nd.
This is a strips n curves quilt.

And no this is not going to be entered in the art competition as it is unfortunately too big. I think it does meet the red requirement though.
