November 2014 Guild Meeting - Welcome Home President Kay & Big Thanks to Vicki. We enjoyed an exciting Gala night with the presentation of Awards for the Festival of Quilts coming up on 13-16 November. Due to the show being a week later this year the prizewinners did not know what ribbon they may have won so there was much surprise and congratulations on the night. Looking forward now to our Annual 4 days at the Fair. December Meeting will be another Party Night, members are encouranged to step out in 1920's style and dazzle with Diamonds & Pearls (or not - it's up to you but it will be fun)
