The first evening meeting of the year is on Thursday 4 February, 7pm for a 7,30pm start, in the Cook Community Hub Hall. This is sit down formal meeting (as opposed to the sit and sew meetings held in the daytime).

There are two special attractions at this meeting:

  • there is a library fund sale. Excess books, DVDs and patterns from the library will be for sale in the hall, as well as donated books magazines and patterns from members. All money raised goes to future library purchases. It is not too late to donate items – just put them in the library returns box in the days leading up to the meeting or give them to librarian Beth on the night. Don’t forget to bring some money to snap up a bargain!
  • teachers and sponsors let us know there plans for the year – classes, workshops, fabric releases, sewing machines etc.

There is the usual fun at the meeting – announcements, lucky door prize, name badge draw, raffles as well as supper after the meeting.

You can join or renew your membership at the meeting. Membership is from 1 January to 31 December each year, so renewals are now overdue! You need to be a financial member to stand for committee or vote at the AGM on 3 March. You also need to be a member by 31 March in order to exhibit and sell at the Annual Exhibition in August.

Evening Meeting- 4 December

December 2, 2014 | Posted in Meetings, membership | By

The evening meeting on 4 December is the target date for all those who took the UFO pledge and committed to finish a UFO quilt project this year. The completed quilts and their stories will be revealed at the meeting, which starts at 7.30pm in the Cook Community Hub Hall.

Even if you haven’t completed your pledge quilt – bring along your progress effort so we can all see what you have achieved.

The evening meeting is the last for the calendar year and will have all the usual fun of show & tell, raffles, lucky door prize and name badge draw. You can also renew your membership (at the old rate!) and return your completed survey.

In order to have a big show & tell to wrap up the year why not bring a quilt you have finished this year, or something you have started in one of the workshops this year – inspire and enthuse us for next year.

In keeping with our tradition of giving, members may bring unwrapped toys, or gift vouchers, to be placed in a basket at the meeting. These will be passed on to one of the charities.

The library will be open in the CQ room, after the meeting. Members can borrow books, magazines and DVDs and keep them until the February meeting – something to while away the hours if it is too hot to quilt. Supper will be available in the hallway outside our room – come for some Christmas cake.
