Applique-In and 2023 Annual General Meeting

Our Annual General Meeting (AGM) was held on Saturday the 11th February at the Masonic Hall in Moonee Ponds.

We had a very interesting day that included Sit & Sew, members' Show & Tell, Janet O'Dell who gave a fascinating potted history of applique through the ages and shared some of her most beautiful antique quilts.
