May 28 2014 Quilting Newsletter
It truly is amazing how many wonderfully handcrafted items we receive from the crafting community and how we manage to distribute it all on one day! We had some visitors to our meeting who said to me how in awe they were of what we are achieving – I said I was too! Here’s the link to the blog: http://sunshinelinusgroup.blogspot.com.au/
I’m busy preparing for our valuation day next week, when we value quilts for quilters. It’s a terrific day, and it’s always lovely to see quilts of all sorts come through the doors. I encourage you to consider having your quilts valued – these valuations are recognised by the required insurance organisations and will stand you in good stead should something awful happen to your favourite quilt.
Sure it will not cover the time you put into making your quilt, but if you can recover just the making costs of materials – that’s got to be better than nothing!
I’m very fortunate to receive complimentary copies of quilt books to review and last week I posted my article on a publication I have reviewed titled “Simple Appeal” published by Martingale. Here’s the link for your interest: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art183358.asp
