14 Feb 2015

Our Valentines Day get together was enjoyed by all, with an array of nifty notions we love to use and showing of items we had made that we love aired for all to see.  Then of course there was news of the 50% off sale at The Quilters Store and a car load of girls dashing to the shop!!!

14 Feb 2015 (18) Did someone say SALE??? – lucky for a 7 seater car Shirley, & off they bolted  haha!!

A couple of new ladies enjoyed their day I think – welcome again to Gail & Chris and hopefully our 3 regulars who were away this month will re-join us in March.  You missed great coffee, lunch, chatter and show & tell – and we missed you Ann, Margaret & Gail.

Until March, happy stitching
