The meeting began with introduction of new members and guests.

Gill informed us that Jean Classen passed away a few days ago, so we had a minute’s silence for her.
Was also informed that Kulvinder’s father-in-law passed away this week.

Then we talked about the coming Exhibition at Sarit Centre, handing of quilts, posters were ready so members could take some to put wherever they could.  Suzanne kindly offered to be in charge of that.

Jasbir Sokhi was in charge again of giving out the raffle books and receiving the ones already sold.

Brij Datta was in charge of the monthly raffle tickets, which we sold at 100/- for 3 and 50/- for 1. The prizes were: 1st was a rotary blade sharpener, 2nd was a book on quotations, and 3rd was invisible thread.

Charu told the members that even if they could not hand in their quilts today, they should at fill in the forms and hand them over so she could do the write ups.

After that I touched on the Canadian Exhibition, informed those who were going to go should start booking their tickets as the prices were going up.

Then we had show and tell, and had quite a few quilts. Thanks to  Surinder Thethy who took photos of the quilts.

We had a break then, and started the meeting after 20 minutes.  First we did the draw, and then formed 4 groups, as we had fours speakers, and started with the demos. The meeting finished at around 12.30 p.m.

As we had a class with Dena in the afternoon, the ladies had a quick lunch while the room was being reset, then we started the class on bindings.  They were 19 of us. The class went well, and everyone was glad to learn two new binding methods.
