FEBRUARY GUILD MEETING A great start to 2016. Nearly 200 members were entertained as Mike Barton shared his quilting journey to date. With Tapestry mastered, his loom in storage & knitting way down on the list, I'm sure he will be quilting for some time to come & fairly recognisable at meetings! Thanks so much Mike, we look forward to seeing you at future show & tell.                                                                                                                                                                        

Generally at one or two Guild meetings each year, the speaker will be of general interest rather than relate to a quilting or textile topic. October 2015 the guest speaker was from Breastscreen SA. This spurred one of our members to get her MMG. She was diagnosed with breast cancer & is currently receiving treatment. Literally, the meeting speaker that night has saved her life & our member wants us to remind you all - don't delay, get your check up!
