A message from the President,
I am not sure why the time before Christmas becomes so frantic and there never seems to be enough hours in the day for my “To Do List” to be completed. Is it because I think I can do more than is actually possible? I can hear some of you agreeing with this and yes, I do say no sometimes although not often enough according to Gary.
I did manage a quick trip to Kyabram to visit One Step Further during the first week in December and then the following week we had our Virtual Quilt Show. The feedback about the virtual quilt show has been positive and there were many opportunities for learning during this event. Thank you to everyone involved, including the members who entered a quilt, our generous sponsors and the volunteers who spent many hours bringing the event together.
Due to time constraints the magazine will not be published until mid January 2022, so please check the website for events during January and February.
I hope your plans for Christmas are proceeding well and that you are able to spend time with family and friends that are special to your life. I wish you and your families a happy, safe and healthy 2022, although avoiding the COVID virus can be a bit of a challenge at the moment.
I am planning on staying close to home with family visiting on Christmas eve, after that I may spend some time quilting and also a little bit of hand piecing. Who knew that I would enjoy hand piecing so much?

The Wagga Project
You are invited to join The Wagga Project! The National Wool Museum asks communities across Australia to look through their closets and trunks for heritage quilts and waggas (also known as bushman’s blankets).
As custodian to one of Australia’s largest and most significant collections of heritage quilts and waggas, the Museum is always on the lookout for more examples and stories to share. Whether treasured family heirlooms, passed from generation to generation or new creations crafted from upcycled treasures of today – we want to know about them! Click here to learn more.
