Where Still Here

After a long absence from blogging we are back and hope to post what  we we have being doing on a monthly basis .

Last night was our AGM and we said good bye to Jenny who has been a fantastic chairman( WOMEN) for the past 6 years. Not goodbye in the sense she is going off and leaving us but it was time for her to hang up her shoes in this role.

I don't think anyone else has ever done it for 6 years and she has managed this with working full time and getting up to sew in the early hours - long before any of us have even dragged ourselves out of bed!

Thank you Jenny for all you have done for Shipton Quilters. It has been an amazing 6 years and hope you can now sit back and just enjoy coming to the group.

We finished off last night with a small show and tell of just 2 colour item's which was varied and of excellent quality. Sorry out of practice and forgot the camera but will try to do better as the year progresses.

We also have made a start on our next charity fund raising quilt . The charity has yet to be decided and we are now asking members to put on their thinking caps to come up with some new idea's of who will benefit from it.

I have started the group off with 2 of the blocks pictured below and now its up to them to choose their fabric and make 2 blocks each for it.
I will post the blocks up as an when they come back to me.

 6 1/2 in blocks

Happy Stitching Ladies
