Yesterday we (=Vlaams-Brabant &Brussel from the Belgian Quilters Guild) had our reunion (=“provinciale dag”)
How can I explain what we did, how we felt, and what did happen on this particularly day?
Best is to show you the pic’s …
First participants arrived at 9.20 am (while doors normally opening at 10.00 am!!! early birds…) and very quickly we ended with 64 in the room.
At the end of the day we showed all our bags, because, even if we don’t really need anything anymore, we can’t resist to visit the shop we invited this year to be present too: ‘t Wolwinkeltje from Leuven.
We are three to get everything done for our region, all year through: from left to right, you see Chris, then this humble writer, and Rita (our coordinates are on our website, if you ever might need it).
There was an exhibition of the works done with the little piece of fabric we gave last year: 24 quilters made something beautiful with it, and first prize won a bundle of fabrics of Kaffe Fassett (to make a whole top for single bed, given by the invited shop ‘tWolwinkeltje.
On the pic: first prize= left; second and third could make first choice between all the stuff we had for our tombola-lottery
And of course we had a show & tell
and there was also a lunch offered to our members, cookies before noon with coffee or tea, dessert in the afternoon, a demonstration with hexagons from Rita, a lot of fun, a lot of talking, a lot of meeting new people and seen back some others, a lot of exchanging tips and tricks, a lot of laughter, … and now it is waiting till the next day, next year (12th of May 2012), but in between we’ll have a lot of quiltbreaks-afternoons …
And I’ll end with Inge (from the shop) presenting THE solution for night work:
glasses with LED lights….
