July PMQG Meeting

July PMQG Meeting

The first meeting of the financial year went well with show and tell of some amazing projects. It never ceases to amaze me the wonderful creativity I see each month. Hoping some of this will rub off on me…. Kate mentioned the upcoming Dresden Plate Mini Quilt Challenge which will have prizes. Check your emails…

May Meetup

As predicted, it was a more subdued meeting today. Quite a few new faces, quite a bit of chat about this year’s Craft and Quilt show and a lot of productive sewing. Show and tell produced some beautiful quilts and WIPs as always… And Jessica brought along her 9 month WIP (now finished for 2…

PMQG April Meeting

Our meeting was held on the 19th of this month … a little earlier due to there being a public holiday in remembrance of our brave ANZACs later on in the month. Swaps dominated the meeting with squeals of delight from every corner (or was that just me when I received my new name badge?)…

Mad March Meeting!

Our “Easter” meeting was truly egg-cellent! The hall was packed with over 30 members in attendance… …and the afternoon tea station was groaning under the weight of Easter goodies. Meanwhile, Karen could be found assembling the new cabinet, purchased to store our growing amount of crap resources. Once everyone had found a spot and settled…

Ah the Wine Tree Retreat …

…how we love thee. It’s calm and relaxing outdoors … birds are twittering, orchard trees are rustling in the gentle breeze and the kangaroos are silently nibbling at the grass. Inside, however, it’s all systems go! This is a sewing retreat after all. Machines are chattering (the Sashiko machine is clunking), quilters are chatting and…

February Meeting

Another busy monthly meeting!  We really do cover some ground every time we meet… This month Serena dropped in early to say hello and show us the #hashtag (see what I did there?) quilt she is binding and which Karen R quilted.  It is part of the charity quilt series currently being assembled by quilters…

Calico and Ivy Sundowner

Our very first PMQG Sundowner was held at Calico and Ivy on the evening of 6 February.  Who knows if it was the lure of the bubbly, the chance to unwind with friends at the end of the week or the chance to stroke the amazing fabric selection (Liberty!) that attracted everyone but it was…

January Meeting

We had a great turn up for our first meeting of the year, lots of chatting, lots of people walking around, groups huddling, it was a hive of activity. We started off with show ’n tell.  I have lots of pics – I got a new camera for Xmas, so I’m still getting used to…

November Meet Up

Our final meeting for 2014 wrapped up today in a bundle of sewing, socialising and show & tell. A lovely turn out with lots of regulars and a new face revamping her mum’s retro curtain quilt. Jodie did a great job updating us with committee news and a shout out to Karen, we are all…

October Meet up

Another really well attended meeting with a few new faces and lots of regulars to welcome them! Everyone found a spot to sew, a cuppa and, if they were lucky, one of the amazing scones with jam and cream…. Emmy provided members with the final installment of the QAYGFMQAL by showing us how to join…
