october meeting

Back to normal in our October meeting after an eventful weekend at our national AGM we did a brief report of the weekend , and our chair LInda praised all the hard work we had put into the AGM , we also discussed the feedback we had all had . Our meeting was exceptionally on the wednesday as the members were off to the Knitting and stitching show on the bus the Thursday 
We carried on with our last few bee block challenges ,Geraldine Ryan got her blocks , the hardest we have done yet , but beautiful foundation piecing blocks and Ann Waters gave out her blocks for next month .We received our 2nd set of blocks for the mystery quilt that will become the minerva cup challenge for June .
Margaret Mcevoy showed us how to make the famous ''fold and stitch wreath'' that has been taking the internet by storm , and also showed us different examples with fusible wadding that made it stand nicely .
Our beginners class brought in their Log Cabin Christmas table runner that they have been painsatkingly making .but were all delighted with the finished runner well done girls !!!
Our very own member Pauline, who is a chiropractor gave a special talk on sewing postures and how to avoid hurting our backs with the position at the machine , and how to relieve tension on our spine , it was very interesting , and everyone was captivated .
Next month we will be back to normal with meeting on the thursday as usual see you there !!!
