A Virtual Celebration

Each September Waverley Patchworkers celebrates its birthday. This year we turned 40, a fantastic achievement. We were not going to let a lockdown prevent us marking the occasion.

For the first time we conducted a Sit and Sew meeting via Zoom. A big attendance, lots of chatter including breaking off into smaller “rooms” and individual cakes with candles made for a great night.

Members had sent in photos of their Show and Tell and here they are. As you can see some people have been very busy finishing off UFOs or working steadily through their stash. Many of these quilts are destined for our gift quilt program

The next meeting in October is our AGM again conducted online as we are still unable to meet in person. Fortunately 2022 is not far away now and we can have a really special Ruby Celebration.

A big thank you to our President and committee for keeping the group going in the world’s most locked down city!
