Where has this year gone? We've been so busy at in2quilting the days are just flying by.
Fay is busy renovating at home which means she is getting closer to having her new studio set up.
The ladies at WOW have been busy finishing off plenty of UFOs and of course starting plenty of new quilts. Every month Show and Tell is full of inspirational quilts that just seem to add to that "Gee I want to do that quilt"
Fay has started planning her workshops for next year. One that she is seeking expressions of interest for is the quilt below - Cheats Quilt. This quilt would look fabulous in all those Grunge Fabrics you've been collecting.
If you are interested in doing this workshop please contact Fay.
Fay is now taking orders for Design Boards. What is a design board you might ask - you've seen them hanging around the room especially during a workshop.
They come as a single board or a double board. As Fay will not be ordering the material until she does a bulk purchase in September the prices are not yet fixed. The estimate is $25-$30 for a single and $50 - $60 for a double.
Our wonderful group of ladies are so very generous. Over the past many years they have been collecting money for various charities, through raffles and charity days. The latest charity to benefit from this generosity is the Dementia Foundation. Today we presented them with a cheque for $2,000.
Don't forget the in2quilting Christmas lunch on Friday the 6th of December. Anyone who wants to attend is more than welcome - you do not have to be a WOW Lady to attend the Christmas lunch. But please notify Fay of your intent to attend. We need to know how many will be attending and we would like to assign a share plate to you.
If you are attending the Christmas Lunch. Do not forget about Dear Jane.
If you are a first timer - you need to organise 3 gifts (homemade, purchased, regifted, baked) no set value - it's the thought that counts. On the day you will draw a name out of a "hat" - your job will then be to secretly place that gift at your ladies table, without her catching you. You will have most of the day to do this, so watch for when she leaves to get a cuppa or chat to somebody, or ask someone else to do it on your behalf.
If you were wondering where your Grunge Delivery for October went... there is no Grunge for October. That does not mean you will be getting two packages in November, there will only be one. Shipments into the country were delayed, so no Grunge in October.
Fay has booked the First Semester dates for WOW 2020, they will be announced in November.
We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at the in2quilting Christmas lunch - until then don't forget about WOW on Friday the 8th of November.
Fay & Annika
