This year’s AGM was well-attended and the Members’ Market proved a great hit with many taking the opportunity for a clear-out and others finding that elusive fabric they’d been needing for months.
Jenny Latham was unanimously voted in as Treasurer and Irene McGranachan unanimously as Secretary. We will be needing a new Chairman next year when Maggie Palmer comes to the end of her tenure.
Many of you attend meetings but we find (in common with so many groups and societies) that very few are willing to volunteer to help with running the group, or even the meetings. We desperately need you to volunteer to help make the tea and coffee each month. If everyone who attended the AGM volunteered to make tea you would only need to do it once every three years! Both Irene and Jenny have served on the Committee before but neither wanted to see the group fold, which it will without its Committee; they were voted in unanimously because no one else was prepared to put their name forward.
The quilts below are from Show and Tell (no further information came with them I’m afraid – ed.).
Our next meeting is on April 6th and is a talk by Liz Brooke-Ward entitled ‘Whatever Floats Your Boat’ and our Trader for the month will be Quilters Trading Post from Buerton.
Don’t forget the British Quilt and Stitch Village at Uttoxeter is April 7th – 9th.
