The Retreat, August Newsletter and the Upcoming Guild Meeting

Well this has been an exciting few weeks. We've taken part in the Annual Retreat to Myrniong - just out of Bacchus Marsh, a wonderful guild meeting in July and there is going to be another great meeting coming up on Saturday. Take a look at the August newsletter and see what fun we have had.

 The retreat had a party theme - and what a party we had, full of lots of sewing, laughter, great food, and wonderful friendships enjoyed. Much creativity was shown, such a talented bunch of ladies - the favourite theme would have had to have been Jackie's 1600 quilt made from a jelly roll, many were created over the weekend. The variety can be endless - such a great idea. Have a look at this YouTube video, it shows just how easy it is. Take a look at our member blogs for more images of the fun time we had at retreat.
On Saturday, 20th August, Bill Westalee will be demonstrating the wonderful adjustable rulers they designed, and having seen a presentation at the Phillip Island Retreat two years ago, I know we can all pick up some great tips and tricks to improve our piecing.

Come along and enjoy the fun.

Happy sewing, Jennifer
