WOW.!!! What a Day.

What a wonderful day we had today.  Our 20th Anniversary Exhibition and Open Day.  The Hall was packed full of visitors all day from the moment we opened at 10.30a.m.  We had Coaches and Cars until the Car Park was overflowing.  There  was plenty for everyone to enjoy.  Here are photographs of most of the Quilts that were on display.

A huge thankyou goes to everyone that came to visit us and we do hope you enjoyed your day.  Also thankyou to all the helpers that did stirling work manning the refreshments, sales tables and Tombola and helping with the setting up the evening before and the breakdown after closing time.  It was a perfect end to our Quilting Year.
Our next meeting is on 19th September 2011 which is our Annual General Meeting.   All are welcome.  This is a public meeting and the ideal time to become a Member.

It is just two weeks now until our big day of the year.  On Monday 20th June we are holding an OPEN DAY and EXHIBITION of work by Members.  The Entrance Fee is £2.50 and this includes refreshments.  We will be open from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.  There will be lots of lovely work to see made by members over the last 20 years.  This is our 20th Anniversary this year.  There will also be new and current work.  We are hoping for a good response from members for the "20" Challenge.  There will be sales tables, a Raffle and Tombola.  It is going to be a good day we are sure.  Hope to see you there.
