February 9 2010 Quilting Newsletter


Hi everyone, itís the 10th of February Ė and life is busy, busy, busy. Here we are getting back to ďnormalĒ, schools back after their 6 week Christmas break, and guilds and quilt groups and resuming their meeting schedules.

I attended our first guild meeting for 2010 yesterday and it was a real buzz. We had approximately 150 members attend and it was a noisy and joyous gathering. Lots of chat with fellow members and changing of library books, purchase a little something from our vendor and a very educational talk from our guest speaker. We had some members from the Quilt Study Group to talk to us about what they do and how they go about it. Itís fascinating to see old quilts coming to life through the discoveries and knowledge of a very interested group of quilters. Iím going to get more involved with studying old quilts, I think thereís a real story there somewhere, and you know me, I love a story!

We also had the first ďshowingĒ of part of the biggest Hexagon Quilt. It was only part and it was enormous. The most amazing effort has been made by so many quilters. This quilt will no doubt break the record for the biggest Hexagon quilt in the world, but will also provide comfort and delight too many, many needy and worthy recipients after the quilt is finally made into single quilts.

It really is an awesome sight to see, and Iíll keep you posted about its progress. The actual presentation is in May, and I will post all the photos I can get hold of as soon as I receive them!

As an editor I receive complimentary copies of publications to read and then review. I received three books recently and have posted my reviews on each of these publications. Hereís the link:

If you have a book that youíd like me to review, if I donít have it, I can get it from my local library. Just drop me a request via the forum and Iíll get onto it!

So, onto my gifts for you this week. Iíve got some interesting little snippets for you, and I hope you enjoy them.

Well, dear quilters, thatís it from me this week. Iíve got a Sisters of Stitch meeting this afternoon, so better get scooting and pack the car. I hope youíre all in good spirits and managing to get some quilting done in your busy lives.
Till next time, take care, give a big smile to a stranger and Iíll pop in again next week.
Cheerio for now
