As well as being the AGM, our club is also celebrating it’s 30th birthday. Certainly quite an achievement and members Yvonne and Diane were invited by our President Lynne to present a potted history of the club and it’s beginnings.
A group of interested ladies met in 1986, and a year later in 1987 the club was formed and a committee established to run things. Pam Retter was the very first President, and sadly passed away some months ago.

The club banner was made by Mary Creed, now sadly passed away.
An award for Life membership was made to the unsuspecting Diane Young. As Lynn mentioned, Diane had been involved with the club for many years, has served in various roles, and helped out immensely with drafting and writing the new club constitution. Both Yvonne and Diane then had the honour of cutting the 30th Birthday Cake.

Lynn read her President’s Report, Ute presented the accounts, the Election of Officers took place, and the AGM was declared over.
Club members had been invited to bring along their first quilts, if they still had them, and their latest quilt, for Show and Tell. What a wonderful selection there was. I particularly liked new member Leeann’s version of William Morris.
And the cute little foxes on Kaye’s quilt

The meeting ended with supper, and drawing the raffle prizes.
