April 2019: With thanks to Otto and Bernina for the donation of a Bernina sewing machine, raffled at the recent Country Forum in Adelaide, $1,000 was raised for Angel Flight. When Anne Marie presented the cheque to John Evins an 'Earth Angel' (ie driver not pilot) at the Guild meeting, there was a suggestion from a member that we "pass the hat around". With good will and generosity, quilters who were present donated an additional $1,076 making a total of $2,076 for this worthy cause.

March 2019: We celebrated our 35th Birthday with an overview of how far we've come in those years and how our founding members got things right when they put early plans into place. Thanks to Christine for the history presentation. Thanks also to Pam Holland for sharing fabric and tales from her recent travels to Kenya. For everyone who attended from near and far to make the night special - a cupcake, to eat and one to save on your sewing machine, made by Anne Marie.

Wednesday 20 Feb, the sun was shining and we welcomed 154 people to the first daytime Guild Meeting for 2019. Pure Wheal gave a very interesting talk 'which colour do you hear? About Synesthesia. Thanks everyone for coming along to support this new initiative. Next time we'll know where to park! Some clever ladies even arrived by bus! Well done everyone. Remember that 1/2 price membership is now available for first time members.
