Applique-In and AGM news

A great day was had on Saturday with our February Applique-In and AGM.

Many thanks to those who were able to make it along and contribute so much to the day; and if distance or prior engagements kept you away, I hope you enjoy the update and photo's.

Let's start with a little Show and Tell...

I'm afraid I was busy with holding up quilts for the morning Show and Tell session so these are only from the afternoon session...Be sure to pop over to our TAG Facebook page to see more pics that Bev has posted.

The AGM was short and sweet as intended, your new committee was duly elected.

They managed to stay reasonably still and sensible for a quick photo call.
