March Guest Speaker

Our next Monthly Meeting will be held at Mt Waverley Community Centre on Monday 27 March. The guest speaker is Ruth Nunn from Lions Australia. She will be explaining a project that started in 2014 and culminates in a quilt representing Australia and the Oceania area in the Centennial celebrations of Lions International to be held in Chicago this year.

The quilt “The Journey” was designed by Maree Marr and is based on the tree of life motif, in this instance the trees flowers represent the areas where Lions are active all over the world.

Ruth will be telling us all about this project and the larger aim of establishing a museum of Australian quilts and textiles. Members and visitors on Monday evening will have the opportunity to view this quilt and of course ask lots of questions.

To whet your appetite here are a two sections of the work.

  

The Lions Club of Quilters Victoria have a Facebook page where you can keep in touch with The Journey.

A reminder to members: the library will not operate at the April meeting, so what you borrow in March is not due until May.
