These are my people

Welcome to the first 2QAQ meeting of 2011 - that's two-quackers and there's not an Indian runner or mallard in sight. There is a wealth of friendship and talent and these are my people. Yesterday thirty of us gathered at the Wellers Hill Bowls Club for an afternoon of live art, show and tell and fun. One of our members was giving new life to old photos affected in the recent floods - and had remade a photo of young love into a postcard that she sent her husband on Valentine's Day. Others kicked off show and tell with the results of their recent challenge - and there was the return of the State of the Art Quilt 10 pieces - reminding us that there are now ... about 48   30   24 is just today   left to complete and enter quilts for SotAQ11.  New members are always made welcome and our March meeting will have guest speakers smartArts  - if you are in the area or interested in art quilts at any level - we would love to welcome you to the group. Our April meeting willl be hands on workshop making penants for the Quilts4London project - a pennant for every olympian and para-olympian (we don't have to make all 16,000 of them ...) All the details of our meetings are on the 2QAQ blog site - it's just $5 per meeting to contribute towards hire of the venue, and BYO lunch.
