As ever there had to be changes on the committee as members can only serve for 3 years. Tessa takes over as vice-chairman, Elaine is now treasurer and Gail the librarian. This means we said a very heartfelt thank you to George, Carol B and Steph who were stepping down.
Carol E has also left the committee after an extended stint as she was asked to stay to oversee the allocation of the lottery grant money. For all her hard work on this we thanked her and were delighted to present her with the Gwent Quilters Cup.
Every year we have an AGM challenge. This year each member was allocated a colour and shape and asked to make a 3 layer quilt 12"x24". We had 20 entries and were delighted with the variety and standard. Aren't they great?
Pat and Elaine.
Our challenge for next year is any 3-layer quilted item in black and white with one plain accent colour. Looking forward to seeing the entries.
We of course also had our 'show and tell'. Mair showed us her completed mini tree wall-hanging and Pat and Fiona were able to show us how they had got on with their Snuggle Quilt from the Dawn Cameron-Dick Workshop last month, very impressed.
Tessa brought along her lovely round quilt which won first prize in the Usk County Show this year, well done Tessa.
