COVID update

We have taken the decision that we have to cancel the next meeting arranged for Wednesday 25th March. This is for the obvious reason of not taking unnecessary risks in relation to the spreading of the Corona virus by holding non-essential meetings.

We are currently investigating whether we can organise some sort of virtual meeting, so we can still look at the contents of the Contemporary Suitcase virtually, and if you would be interested in being involved in that, please can you contact me at the Southwest London quilter’s email address, or via the website Contact tab or Facebook. We will let you know what we are permitted to do as soon as we hear back from the Quilters’ Guild on this.

We are very sorry that we have had to do this, but we want all our members to stay safe and in the meantime why don’t you post your show and tell on the Facebook members only group so we can all enjoy looking at what everyone has been up to this month!

Facbook/membership renewal

At our committee meeting on Monday, we decided that we would like to keep the Facebook group for members only, and we will be removing names of those who expressed an interest initially but have not gone ahead and joined. This is just a polite reminder to please make sure that you pay your annual subscription to the South West London Quilters group by the end of March.

If you don’t want to join but would like to follow our website at https://www.swlondonquilters.org.uk you can do that by registering on the site. We will be doing our best to keep the site up to date with news about our activities.

We would love to see you all at our next meeting which is on Wednesday 26th February. There will be a short talk on making a Wendy Williams (Flying Fish – block of the month) quilt by group member Louiisa Lawson. And we will also be discussing our next group project making a modern sampler quilt. There will also be our group bi-monthly challenge and show and tell.

We will also be taking bookings for the Lisa Walton workshop which we have arranged for Sunday 28th June. Details can be found here. It is important to book now as spaces are limited and we anticipate it being very popular.

Membership

Just to recap, annual membership is £30 for the year with a £3.00 per meeting fee. Besides the monthly meetings and the numerous benefits of being a member, listed on the web site, you will also get priority booking for the workshops we are organising.

The more members who join, the more diverse and interesting a programme we will be able to plan for the future. More details on https://www.swlondonquilters.org.uk/membership/
