The meeting yesterday was the first club meeting since the Quilting Symposium in Queenstown. So we had members who had been to Queenstown tell us about their trip and the classes they took. Sonya also spoke about being a tutor for the first time at a Symposium, she really enjoyed it and is looking forward Taupo Symposium in 2013.
Unfortunately the photos I took as these people spoke did come out (too much sunlight behind them), but I'm sure when the items are completed we will see them again at future show n tells. Anyway onto the photos that did come out!

And congratulations to club members Shirley Julian & Robyn Halverson who both won awards at the Symposium.
They didn't have their quilts with them yesterday as the quilts are now travelling the country in the Suitcase Exhibition of award winners.
The Exhibition will be in Whangarei in August at Itch to Stitch, Bernina.
