Tote & Gloat

Tote and Gloat is the annual event that Rose City Quilters hold in May. This year it is Saturday 9th May. The day starts at 8:30am and you can enjoy shopping with the merchants or looking at the Guest Exhibitions. At 10am everyone takes a seat and the huge Show and Tell starts, everyone attending is encouraged to bring quilts to share at this show and tell and if quilts are finished and have a velcro sleeve they are hung to view again. Over the lunchtime you get to go up close and have another look at the quilts hung and , of course, check out the merchants again as well as have lunch. After lunch the guest speaker is Kay Haerland from Australia. She will be bringing lots of quilts to show us and talking about her quilting life. Check out her website and see how interesting she is. Then it is the drawing of raffles and awarding of prizes for Rose City Quilter members who entered the challenges and the day finishes at 4pm.  What a fabulous day, immersed in quilting and sharing with likeminded people. There are still tickets available - either from me or from Rose City Quilters, P O Box 892, Palmerston North 4443 enclosing $15 per ticket and an SAE for returning them to you.
I will be there as a merchant and look forward to seeing you and your quilts.

Now on Facebook

I am now on Facebook - you can visit and follow me (like me) on . I will post often as things arrive in store or happen.
We recently had the Brother Scan N Cut demo from Rachel - thank you, it was a lovely day and lots came to visit.
Now looking at the possibility of having a regular group meet for Scan N Cut users. We can share info and I'll show you something new each time. What do you think about monthly - during the day or evening? Love to hear your views.
