JULY Koolkat Quilting

This month we had a visit from Kathy Adams from  

We had a great day we had about 19 ladies, it was nice to have a large group for the day. We had a few ladies who don't usually come to McIntyre Quilters and  Stitchers and I really hope the outcome of the weekend was such that they will come again because we really loved to have them there.  By the end of the weekend most ladies had their butterflies together and some even had theirs finished.

Thanks to Bernie M for cooking lovely Chicken Korma Curry and Osso Bucco for dinner and delicious potato and bacon soup for our lunch .

Thanks to Margie S for the delicious cheesecakes for dessert.

Thanks to Gail Clark, the president of the group for the organisiation and effort she puts into planning activities  for everybody to do. 

CHANGE IN PLANS - Due to family commitments I have had to change plans for AUGUST .  We will now do "The Vintage Sewing Cushion" on the October weekend. I hope that doesn't inconvenience anyone too much.
