Round Robin

Poor Di has started the new year off with a broken computer so I have been asked to put the information which would have been in the Round Robin onto the blog.
Until the January meeting Lynda Hill has the polyester& Ruth Wallett the 80/20 wadding. Please contact them if you want some brought ready cut.  From then on Jill Doyle will hold both waddings so ring her on Tel: 01788 338014. It is much easier than cutting lengths cut at the meetings.  The prices are £6 a yard for 90” wide 80/20 & £5.50 for 120” polyester.
Mystery Quilt
We hope you have enjoyed making your two blocks over the last two months & hope you will bring them along for show & tell.
The first workshop of 2013 is on Thursday 21st February. Award winning quilt maker Alison Bramley will show us her method of working with silk fabric to make a Celtic letter. She will bring a pattern for your chosen letter & also has silks to purchase at cost price. If you’ve tried & given up on working with silk then do come along. The booking form will be at the January meeting.
Our first meeting of 2013 will be on Wednesday 16th January.
We have hired the collection of almost 50 small quilts for you to look at. They were made by members of the Contemporary Quilt Group on the theme of “Childhood Memories”.
Sarah Showers is a member of the group & will be telling us a little more about them.
Muriel Goldschmidt is also bringing examples, books & ideas of the sort of projects that can be made using the very popular jelly rolls. If you have already bought a jelly roll but not used it here is a chance to see some examples & maybe encourage you to buy one or use the one lurking in your stash.
Subscriptions of £20 are due in January but can be paid over two months if that suits you better. Please put the cash or cheque (payable to Piecemaker Quilters) in an envelope with your name, address, telephone number & e-mail address if you have one on the outside & drop it into the box on her table.  This information is only used for the committee to keep in touch with members & will not be shared with anyone else.
The 2013 programme will be ready to collect at the February meeting.
