Gatherings and groups today Pt2

Another long running SCQuilters group in the Melbourne area occurs at Carrum Downs on the first Wednesday of every month. The group has a blog http://carrumdownsscquilters.blogspot.com/ which records (loosely) the facts and frivolity that take place  when Scquilters from around the south/east of Melbourne, as well as any who happen to be visiting the area, get together.  Coordinator Helen says, "I think one of our best meetings ever was the one before the Bendigo retreat several years ago when we had visitors from all over Australia. Anyway, we have been meeting for over 13 years, sharing our highs and lows in quilting and in life in general."

"We try have regular charity days, including the "biggest Morning Tea" for cancer research, visiting speakers, travelling "suitcase" quilt shows and occasional classes."

"We have a fabulous lending library too. It is a very welcoming group and we willingly share our expertise (or lack of it) with other members of the group. And our Christmas parties each December are really something special. Read our blog and see what you think."
