I regret that the information re the change of speaker was in correct.  It was not the November meeting that was changed it should have been October.

The October meeting was well attended and Greta Fitchett showed us her beautiful quilts.  One of the quilts had been jointly made with her husband.  He had drawn the design and she made the quilt but had to remember to check with him when she made decisions about the construction or the quilting.  She said that on a number of occasions what she would have done was altered after their discussions

The inspiration for a number of the quilts that she showed us was reflections and an example is shown below.

A very good question and answer session was held after her talk.

Big Textile Show

Vicky Cooper visited the Big Textile Show and sent the following report of her experience.

Although it was termed The Big Textile Show, it held interest and appeal to many.
I ended up visiting twice, because I felt that I needed to check out the stalls again, which offered lots of interesting stuff (some things I had never encountered before).
It's always good to get new ideas, although not totally of the patchwork and quilting modality.
I attended two workshops, one given by Viv, and another by Liz Ingram.  What talent we have within our membership  at Cosby Quilters, and please can we organise similar events for our group.  In fact, it was hard to decide which workshops to select.
The catering facilities were excellent, and there was a real buzz about the college.
Congratulations to the local ladies, Sue and Jenny who worked so very hard to bring textiles to our doorstep.
