ROWmakers- next meeting 11 November

The next meeting of ROWmakers is on Wednesday 11 November, 10am for a 10.30 start, until 12 noon. Here is a report from convenor Joanne on the last meeting – as you can see we have two sets of ingredients to choose from.

We now have our final group of ingredients, plus a little bit extra – as I’ll soon explain. Three ladies, who hadn’t chosen before, brought along a block this week so they chose the round 9 ingredients. However, I’d been thinking that the choices that are left might be a bit difficult to incorporate so I thought it might be a good idea to choose an alternative group of ingredients.

Luckily there were three ladies who had brought along blocks during the year (but not this month) who hadn’t managed to get their names drawn out of the bag. They chose the alternative round 9 ingredients.

How you use the two groups is up to you:

  •   You can choose one or the other.
  •   You can choose both if it suits you to make two blocks.
  •   You can mix and match the ingredients……..OR
  •   You can ignore the whole lot!

We’ll be meeting again in November for a progress show-and-tell, and in December for our Christmas get-together and GRAND SHOW-AND-TELL. This will involve the draw for the KimoYES Gift Voucher followed by morning tea.

It appears we’ll be continuing next year. I thought we’d leave the ingredient groups NEARLY the same. The colour and alphabet groups are fine, but I thought the “Touch of Spice” group could do with some tweaking. If you have any suggestions could you let me know at the November meeting or by e-mail.

Have fun finishing your project,
