AGM Report.

The AGM  was poorly attended this year which was disappointing as this was the 25th Anniversary of the Group and to mark the occasion Ann Jones had made a special cake for us all to enjoy.  Photographs were taken of founder members that were present cutting the cake and this will be sent to the local paper.
After all the usual business we had a display of small quilts from the Quilters Guild Contemporary Group Suitcase Collection.  The title of the challenge was 'All in a Days Work' and when opened the suitcase revealed many little treasures.

These suitcase collections that are available to hire from the Quilters Guild are a great talking point and the work is very diverse.

Our new programme has been arranged and I have added it to the Diary.  Maureen has worked very hard to get a an interesting programme together and we hope that members and visitors will be interested and pleased with the workshops and talks on offer.

Our next meeting is on October 17th when we are very pleased to welcome Textile Artist Elizabeth Sayers.  Elizabeth will be talking about her work with 'The Landscape in Textiles'.  Some of you may already know of Elizabeth and her work as she exhibits during Dorset Arts Weeks at Othona Community.  Her work is stunning and it will be very interesting to get an insight into how she goes about creating it.
