I'd like to personally, and I'm sure my fellow workshop attendees will agree, give thanks to Lyn for the wonderful bag making from denim jeans.It was amazing just to see the stash of denim that Lyn owns. Lyn was a great teacher, we were all most inspired, I can see many bags in the future coming to light. My husbands hand me downs just didn't make the cut - literally, too worn - I need to steal them sooner in the future ;-). The newsletter shows our work for the day, and I'm sure future show n tell will show many final products. Thanks again Lyn.
This month, at the guild meeting, we are hosting two events - first is Library Week, bring along quilts or other sewing items inspired from books - the items along with the books will be on display during the meeting night.
With May being the month when THE BIGGEST MORNING TEA is held with the focus on Cancer, and the thursday morning ladies are having their PINK morning, the theme of our May evening meeting will be
Come along and enjoy a fun PINK night!
All visitors are welcome.

Lyn will be running this workshop from 10.30am to 12.30pm. Then at our meeting we can look forward to some lovely show and tell and some general information for the rest of us. Check the newsletter, link above, for further details.
You will need to start collecting those old denim jeans from the cupboard or the op shop and look out for groovy details that you can incorporate into the bag design. You will be told what to bring when you book in.
Come along and join us - it is a wonderful day. All visitors welcome.

Jenni Scott from Always Quilting is coming to inform us all about thread.
She is a great speaker and will be giving us all sorts of advice about which threads to use where. She does sell the Aurifil Threads and will have them to purchase on the night, although she will not just be talking about her own threads which is great. You can check out her website at Always Quilting.
All are welcome - come and enjoy the companionship of fellow sewers - and see a wonderful array of show n tell. It always amazes me the diversity of quilting styles - all beautiful and inspirational.
