Hello <<First Name>>

Welcome to the first ever Canberra Quilters Inc. Bulletin.  The aim of the bulletin is to provide you with an overview of what activities are planned for this month and share with you ways for you to get involved with Canberra Quilters.

We'd love to hear what you'd like to see or hear more of when it comes to Canberra Quilters so please drop us a line and let us know.

We wish you a happy and safe November!

7 November - Monthly Night Meeting - Bring & Buy

Do you have quilts, unloved UFOs, fabric, tools, sewing machines and books that you want to sell? Are you wanting to have a fun evening of buying, selling and swapping? At the November evening meeting, we will have a market stall at the end of the night.  It will be fast, furious, run and a little bit of a frenzy!

If you'd like to know more be sure to check out the Canberra Quilters Blog (click here for link).

Wonderful Wednesday - 20 November 2013

The Wonderful Wednesday meeting on 20 November 2013 is the last of the year, it is the annual Christmas meeting. Members are encouraged to bring Christmas themed Show & Tell. They are also encouraged to bring a donation of something in the personal care area (moisturizer, soap, shampoo) that will be given to a women's refuge.

For more information please see the Canberra Quilters Blog.

Every year Canberra Quilters has two challenge theme categories at the exhibition. For 2014 the theme is ‘Opposites’. Members can choose to respond to the theme anyway they like in their quilt or creative clothing item:

  • Quilt – measuring 70cm x 50cm, portrait or landscape orientation
  • Garment or accessory

There are many opposites in the world. You may want to choose opposites on the colour wheel- red/ green, blue/orange, yellow purple. Or go with black and white. You could have symbols like positive (+) and negative (-), Yin/ Yang, Male/ Female (♂ ♀). You represent fast and slow in some way or stop and go. Using just stitch you could create rough and smooth. There are many possibilities for you to consider.

Enter your items in the Annual Members Exhibition, held in August 2014. You have until June to submit an entry. The entry pack will be available in the March 2014 issue of Connecting Threads and online from March 2014. You need to be a member by 31 March 2014 to be eligible to enter items in the exhibition.
