My New Year’s resolution is to finish my UFO’s (unfinished objects), of which I have a few.

We had our Christmas lunch at the Rainbow Beach Sports Club and the meal was excellent as always. We had a great time with great company and lots of food. Our thanks go to the staff at the Sports Club for the great job they do for us.

We will be back to quilting on January 15, all refreshed and ready to go. Our first day won’t be too energetic as we will all be catching up and talking – lots of that.

On January 22 we will be making a small bag called ‘Nellies Sewing Bag’, Irene is going to show us how to do this.

On February 20 we are going on a bus trip out to Bells Bridge and Howard to look at some fabric and maybe buy some!

Not only do we make quilts of all shapes and sizes, we do make smaller items such as bags, cup holders, table runners, placemats etc. So it does not have to be a quilt you make if you want to come and join us.

You do not need an expensive machine if you are learning, just a straight sewing machine is good enough. We have quite a few interesting projects in the year, as well as a few bus trips, so if you are interested, join us.

We are always looking for new members – we are a friendly group! If you have never done patchwork or would like to learn to sew, come along, there is always someone to help you.

Meet Tuesdays 9am at the Community Complex, corner of Tin Can Bay Rd and Bayside Drive next door to the Cooloola Bowls Club.
