The October meeting of the KQG was a fun time of remembering the Quilt Show held at the Sarit Center on October 3rd, 4th, and 5th. There were 31 women present, of whom 5 were visitors. Some of the visitors came after attending the show and becoming interested in the group.
We had a drawing for the block of the month; members had made 20 blocks so there were two lucky winners. The calendars have turned out well, and are available for sale at 300 ksh each. Several people had brought quilts for “show and tell.” Even one of the visitors showed the “coffee pot cozy” she had made from one of the Guild kits.

Jharna showed slides of all of the quilts at the show (over 150!), and we were able to comment and tell stories both of the quilts and of the reactions of the visitors to those quilts. Neela passed out kits, put together by Sheryl and friends, for making hexagon folded flowers. Each of the women there was then able to make one of the flowers.
Several people stayed and visited and sewed after the meeting.
