Show & Tell
(oops I didn't get the makers name but she was happy to share this corner of her beautiful bright quilt)

September Guild Meeting - 180 quilters were seated to hear Heather Hopkins, Handy Quilt Educator from Adelaide Sewing Centre share her love of machined quilts. Heather's bright personality & obvious skill with the machine(s) made for an entertaining talk & display. Thanks Heather.
We are now in the countdown to Festival of Quilts 2016 & really excited to announce that with 24 hours to go before close of entries there were 194 forms submitted. What a wonderful display of quilts we will have. The opportunity to enter a quilt for 'exhibition' over 'competition' has been a great success & there is great excitement as the quilts are arriving. Anne Marie was also excited to announce the challenge theme for 2017 "South Australia, Ocean to Outback' so we can get our thinking caps on asap.
Wendy also has given us a challenge for Little Quilts of Love. Check out the instructions & get involved, it's really easy. Quilt Encounter envelopes are now available so you won't miss the mail out in February. QE also has a challenge pack available so lots to do!   Update final entries to FOQ 235!

Royal Show Congratulations Tara Sniedze won Best of Show & Best Hand Quilting Award with her quilt Montmellick Remastered as well as the 9 patch category for 'O my gosh I still have scraps'. Congratulations to all entrants & winners. Great reason to visit the show this week Sept 2 - 11.
