AGM & Applique-In report

Many thanks to everyone who came along to our AGM and Applique-In at Moonee Ponds on Saturday.  A lovely day was had with lots of stitching and chatting.

Award winning quilt designer and tutor Chris Serong was our guest speaker for the day, she wowed us all with her  charm and of course her beautiful quilts.

Thank you Chris, your quilts are very inspiring and beautiful.

As well we had two fabulous shops attend, it's always great to see what new things are on offer and we appreciate that you brought your shops along and also generously contribute to our raffle prizes.

(Patchworks Unlimited will be the venue for the Pascoe Vale TAG Chapter starting in March, many thanks Pauline for making the shop available.  Details on Chapters page.)

Our AGM was  kept short and sweet so as not to cut in to our precious stitching and chatting time.  A new committee was elected and a couple of items of biz, job done lol. Many thanks to Heather Bonney who officiated once again for us.

Many thanks indeed to the outgoing committee who have given their time so generously over the last 12 months. And welcome to the incoming committee.

Don't relax yet!

I will get the President's report, the Treasurer's report and the AGM minutes up on the Members Document page this week.

And I'll be back again in a day or two with the gorgeous Show and Tell from the day.

Happy Stitching.
