Spring Gathering

I have recently become President of Waverley Patchworkers for a second year; the first year has flown by probably because it was so busy. Our next big event is the Spring Gathering on Saturday November 12th, it is actually the Victorian Quilters Spring Gathering hosted by Waverley Patchworkers.

The Spring Gathering will be held at the Mulgrave Community Centre, 355 Wellington Road, Mulgrave. Victoria, Australia. Doors open at 9.30am and entry will be $5. It will be a fun day where we bring our sewing and chat to others while we eat cakes and possibly win a prize.

Visitors are welcome, so if you live in Melbourne please come and join in the fun. You need to bring some hand sewing, and your lunch, mug and show and tell; we'll take care of the rest. There will be 5 shops to browse, quilts to admire and prizes to win. Sounds like a fun day doesn't it?

I have even more Waverley Patchworkers news because the latest issue of Down Under Quilts magazine has come out and there is a 4 page article about our quilt show from earlier this year.

Down Under Quilts no. 177

The photos are large and look great so look out for the magazine in the shops now.

So what have I been doing lately? Well I have been busy organising Waverley Patchworkers events and helping my daughter look after her new baby, Jack.

I have also been making fish and coral for my next underwater quilt. Life is busy, but life is great.


Bye for now, hope to see you at the Spring Gathering.

Thanks Jude, life is very busy at the moment. I hope that next year will be a little more sedate!!
