December Guild Meeting - For our Christmas meeting, everyone was invited to wear a hat. A table was provided with supplies to rustle something up if you forgot & to cater to visitors! Pictured here we have 3 of 4 winners - Well done everyone for the great participation & thank-you Jeannie for officiating. Thanks so much to guest speaker Raelene for her insight to the 22nd European Patchwork Meeting in Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines, France. Thanks also to Cat & Ben for singing us into the meeting & to Quilters Quarters for bringing the shop. In keeping with the 'Hat' theme & in the spirit of Christmas giving, we did 'pass the hat' & to make a donation to Fred's Van
Our Executive committee then sang us to supper with their rendition of 'We wish you a Merry Christmas' & served yummy home made treats. No meeting in January, Happy Holidays, see you in 2018!

Christmas Placemats: Last date for delivery to the shop Monday 18 December
Jen & Terry from Patchwork By Sea, now at Morphett Vale encourage us to get involved in their annual Charity project. This will be the sixth year for a very worthwhile initiative. Mats are distributed to Griffith Rehabilitation Hospital and some local Aged Care homes. They are given to residents to keep and are sized to fit on the trays for breakfast & then Christmas dinner. There are working bees held at the shop & you can make contact for more details.
If you would like to make a mat at home or in your group, the size is 13" x 18" Please include some light wadding, any design, pillowcase style or bound, up to you. 
As well as the mats Patchwork By Sea also collect wadding offcuts used for teddy bears and small, unopened 'hotel' type toiletries for pamper packs. All donations are welcomed & valued. Here are 3 mats made by Dorothy and a few samples brought along by Jen & Terry.



November Guild Meeting - November Guild Meeting - 179 members & 23 visitors! What a great turn out for the first 'demo' night. Thanks to all the ladies who wrangled all their paraphernalia to present the varied demos. Lots of interest & questions. Please offer your feedback about this initiative. The plan is to have a demonstration every second meeting in the space where Patches are distributed on the alternate months. Thanks also to Pennylane Patchwork from Victor Harbor squeezing into the space with a beautiful selection of goodies. 
Rachelle gave us an interesting talk on copyright from a 'personal' perspective, rather than the legalities. Consider that a designer may need to sell 300 patterns just to cover costs, whereas the cost to the maker is a very small investment in support of the designer. Buying the pattern instead of sharing should ensure that the designer will still be in business next time you go looking.
