What's new

 A Meeting
There will be a Guild meeting on Saturday 20th October.  Don't forget to wear your NOTY name tag to go in the competition for a delightful prize.

This meeting will feature trading tables.
Any NOTYQ members are welcome to set themselves up a stall.  All we ask is a donation to the Guild.  Good excuse to share some of those fabrics and gadgets that seemed like such a good idea when you bought them; or to clean out your sewing room to make more room for new purchases,
or make some money on your odds and ends - to spend on more fabric!!!
Give Pam Bores a call to book your table.  Her phone number is in the newsletter.
 A Newsletter
And there is another wonderful newsletter produced by fabulous Glenda.  They just keep getting better and better.  Missed your copy?  You can read it HERE

...features a project by our very own NOTY member, Claire Gee of Matching Pegs.
