Gatherings and Groups Today Pt 3

A long-running SCQuilters group in Sydney is the Sydney Scquilters group or SYDSCQ for short. This group began meeting in an airy room at the back of the Pennant Hills Hotel back, in the early noughties. The pub was chosen for its proximity to Craft Depot, a large quilt shop which shares a carpark with the pub. However, in 2007, the pub remodelled, making the room into an outdoor smoking area, and the group moved to the Blue Gum Hotel in Waitara. They aren't really heavy drinkers! The pubs offer clean, airy premises, with food, at a very reasonable price.
The group has had a blog http://sydneyscquilters.blogspot.com/ since 2006, regularly showing photos of their quilts, sometimes their food and with occasional guessing games organised by clever Pennie, the coordinator.

They even got reported in the local Northside Magazine! http://sydneyscquilters.blogspot.com/2011/06/here-we-are-in-northside-magazine.html after some reporters came to visit the group.

The group meets 1st Saturday of the month 10am till about 3:30pm and issues an open invitation to SCQuilters everywhere to come and visit them.
