Life Member of Waverley Patchworkers Inc.

 At the end of last year, I was very proud to be made a life member of Waverley Patchworkers. I received my badge and certificate at our meeting last month because it was our first in-person meeting.

It was a great honour and never expected that it would happen to me. This is what was written in our newsletter. 

Linda joined Waverley Patchworkers in 1999 and since
then has become an internationally renowned quilter
winning prizes in Victoria, Australia and overseas.

She has been a member of the main committee for a total
of 6 years: 1 year as Trading Table coordinator; 2 years as
Workshops coordinator; 2 years as President and 1 year as
Vice-President and Rosters coordinator.

In addition to this she was on the Waverley Quilt Show
committee for 2 years and then convened the show for 3
exhibitions. This led onto being Convenor of the Victorian
Quilters Showcase Exhibitions. Linda’s sharing of
knowledge and inspiration through convening the Art
Quilters Group has been exceptional. Those who attend
this group speak of her leadership and monthly challenge
to members to explore their creativity as a highlight in
their quilting journeys. This quiet support and
encouragement of quilters has enabled many members to
advance their quilting skills and their enjoyment of

It is recognition of both her expertise and skill in quilting
and the roles that Linda has held at Waverley
Patchworkers and Victorian Quilters that has earned her
this award.

Congratulations Linda!

There are not many members who have been made a life member and I feel very humbled because I really look up to those who have gone before me.

Bye for now,

I would have said you were very deserving of this even before I read the quoted list of your accomplishments. Well done!

Thank you Nestki, I usually take on commitments to give back to the club that has supported me, but it is lovely for it to be noticed by others.
