Quilters' Guild of South Australia Inc


Important Notice from the President of the Quilters' Guild of South Australia

Hello Everyone - I hope you had a lovely Christmas and wish you a safe and Happy New Year.

The Covid-19 deteriorating situation in South Australia over the last few weeks has meant that the Guild Executive has had to make the difficult decision to suspend all Guild activities for January, February and March 2022. We have a duty of care to you our members, our volunteers and ourselves.

This will apply to Guild meetings (both evening and daytime), Executive meetings, sub-committee meetings, sit and sew days, modern group meetings, workshops, the trunk show and appraisal day.

As far as workshops and the trunk show are concerned alternate arrangements are being worked on as I write this email. If you were to be a participant in either you will be notified when alternates have been finalised.

We apologise for any inconvenience this will cause to our meeting Guest Speakers, shops and the groups featuring Community raffle quilts at our February and March meetings.

We strongly recommend that our member groups consider suspending their group activities. In addition, please continue to follow the Federal, State and Local Government health directives. This may mean that groups decide to cancel activities which require wide notification of the cancellation. Please contact the Guild Communications team if you need information added to the Guild website or FB page to help with this. Email Communications Team at [email protected].

Festival of Quilts was due to be launched at the February meeting. Look out for the next issue of I-Patch where the theme, the ‘project’ and Challenge will be revealed for the 2022 Festival of Quilts, to be held 12-14 August.

The Quilts of Love team has asked that members do not take any quilts to our drop off points until further notice, as we should not be putting the shop owners at unnecessary risk at this time.

To keep you challenged/entertained during this time Chris O’Brien is again working her magic and an online mystery quilt will be available shortly. Follow the Guild Facebook page and website for details. The next issue of I-Patch, due mid-February, will have the first couple of instalments of the mystery quilt as well, for those who are not on Facebook. Then instalments will follow in subsequent issues of I-Patch.

If you have any questions or comments please contact me by phone on 0432 483 263 or email [email protected]

Wishing you all the best until we meet again face to face Stay safe, stay well.
