A big thank you to Pam for organising our guild meeting speakers for the last couple of years. I’ve taken over the job and will strive to make the speakers and events as much fun and as informative as possible. The October meeting will continue our long established tradition of trading tables.

Please let me know by October 12th if you would like to book a trading table for our October Guild Meeting. Priority will be given to NOTYQ members but if there are spaces left we will make them available to others with priority given to groups raising funds for other non profit groups. Cost 10% of sales


Please email Melody at or send me a text message to 0433 565 936 to book.


Jackie very kindly arranged for Illumination Solar to visit for the October Meeting and I, for one, think their solar lights and chargers will make great Christmas presents for some of my family members who are tricky to buy for.

You can read about their products at

B & S MOBILE SHARPENING will also be visiting.

Have all those blunt knives, scissors, chisels, plane blades, secateurs, hedge clippers, axes,pinking shears, overlocker blades etc, (sorry, no saws),sharpened for the special price of $5.00 per item. All work guaranteed.

Your items to be sharpened, plus THE CORRECT MONEY, must be wrapped in a plastic bag and
left in the box at the sign in table at 10.00am or given to Melody, Marg or Anita on Thursday 15th.
If you can’t make it on the 15th, or at 10.00am on the Saturday 17th, please give them to a friend
to deliver. Please make sure each individual item has your name and phone number.

A Display

When Leanne Beasley visited we had a display of members’ versions of her projects and many members said they really enjoyed this aspect of the day so I plan to introduce something like this at each guild meeting. So for our October Meeting PLEASE BRING ALONG YOUR FAVOURITE PIN CUSHION (limit of three per member). They can be made by you, a gift or even purchased...just make sure your name is pinned to the bottom so every little treasure goes home with right person.

The November theme will be BAGS and the December theme CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS.

The next Social Media Giveaway prize will be drawn at the guild meeting too. Would you like to enter? Just leave a comment on our blog

There will be the usual door prizes and raffle and lots of fun with your quilting friends. Please wear your name badge and don’t forget your mug and lunch.
