Our visitors, Bev, Marta, Abigail, Gaudencia, and Veronica were given a warm welcome to our meeting. We are happy to see the return of Estelle, an old member who has been away for 8 years!

Patty expressed her sorrow at recent events which happened at Westgate shopping mall. She felt that it would be nice for the KQG to acknowledge the wonderful work carried out by the Kenya Red Cross during this awful tragedy. Members were asked to sign up to make a red and white ‘Peace’ wall hanging for them and we received a good response.

New library books have been purchased in UK and are expected to arrive soon–be on the look out!

Gill Rebelo is waiting for feedback from Turkey about the possibility of individuals entering quilts into their 2014 show.

Bev Rebelo’s recent classes were excellent!  Gill was disappointed that the response from members was not as good as before. Bev’s visit did not coincide with a Guild meeting at the beginning so perhaps members were unaware of the wonderful learning opportunities to be had from her classes. Do not miss out next time!

Members were asked what skills they would like to learn. One member suggested ‘piecing curves’. If you want to learn a patchwork skill, LET US KNOW! Call or email any of the Executive Committee members.

THURSDAY 7TH NOVEMBER, 09.30 0NWARDS, SIMBA UNION. Put this in your diaries everyone! It is UFO day! Bring your unfinished projects and we will help you finish them. No quilt is a lost quilt! Bring a vegetarian (requirement of the Sikh Union) packed lunch.

WEDNESDAY 11TH DECEMBER IS THE CHRISTMAS LUNCH! Come along and have fun! More details later…..

Show and Tell was, as always, a wonderful array of our members work!

Gill explained the ‘Mystery Quilt’ project to us. It is open to all members at all skill levels. Instructions are in ‘Snippets’ from this month onwards.

Bev Rebelo showed us some of her fantastic quilts. I think this made many members wish they had signed up for her classes! She went on to demonstrate the use of photography and the free computer program called ‘GIMP’ where photographs can be manipulated and printed onto fabric. It was a very inspiring talk.

Finally, our door prize was won by Marcia!

Next regular meeting will be held on Thursday, November 21, at the Sikh Union off Forest Road in Nairobi.
