2019 Annual General Meeting and Unveiling of the 2019 Suitcase Challenge entries
 
All members and visitors are warmly invited to our annual general meeting to be held on Saturday 12 October at 10am at Burwood RSL. Aside from the AGM reporting and procedural matters, there will be:
  • Display of entries in the QuiltNSW annual Suitcase Challenge Competition answering the theme “From these Curtains”. We have had a record number of entries – over 75 – so expect to be wowed by the creativity and technical mastery of our members. Winners will be announced at the afternoon general meeting – find out who has won the BERNINA 215 sewing machine, donated by BERNINA Australia, that will be personalised with an image from their prize winning quilt. 
  • Awards under QuiltNSW’s Scholarship Program and Country Tutor Program
  • Awarding of the Volunteer Recognition Award, with the chosen volunteer to receive a Gold Delegate Pass to AQC 2020 donated by Expertise Events . It is not too late to nominate a member, which can be done online here
  • Unveiling of the 2020 raffle quilt, generously made by our member group, Blue Mountains Quilters Inc. This raffle quilt will form the first prize in our 2020 Super Raffle, which is drawn at the conclusion of the QuiltNSW Sydney Quilt Show 2020 and designs from it will be used for the design of the quilt show badges and marketing material.
  • Election of Committee members for the next 12 months – a few current Committee members cannot stand again so come along to meet new Committee members. 
  • Guest speaker will be Judy Newman of Expertise Events sharing insights into textile themed international tours – why go on one? what do they offer that is different to travelling by yourself? where to go? This talk will be accompanied by a slide show of images from Judy’s textile travels.
  • Pop Up shop will be Patchwork on Pittwater.
The meeting will also have our regular show and tell by members (so please bring something to share) and time to catch up with other members. 
 
Many members work on hand sewing during presentation parts of the meeting so don’t forget to pack hand sewing.
