Bay Quilters General Meeting – Beaumaris Library Hall

19 February @ 10:30 am - 1:00 pm

Free

GUEST SPEAKER:  JULIE ADAMSON, with her amazing applique quilts!  Don’t miss this opportunity to hear Julie speak.

MONSTERS Summer Challenge to be voted on!

Orphan block/kits rehoming table!  (there will be NO trading table this month).

Once again, due to the ongoing Covid situation, the committee has decided this meeting will againl be a picnic at the rear of Beaumaris Community Centre (‘our hall’) from 10.30 to 1 pm. There will be no charge, no raffle and no door prize.

We have a plan for fine weather, and an alternate plan for a rainy or extremely hot day. As usual, a reminder email will be sent a few days before the meeting and by then we’ll have an idea of the weather forecast.

In fine weather:

  • We’ll meet outside so there is no need to check in to Bay Quilters
  • Please come to the rear of the hall, as there will be no access through the hall
  • Members will need to sign our attendance book for insurance purposes
  • If you enter the library for the bathroom, please use the front door of the library only and check in using their QR code
  • BYO chair, drinks, snacks, hat, sunscreen and name badge, show and tell, Monster blocks, orphan blocks/projects
  • Please bring any Quilts from the Heart
  • The library will operate outside from 10.30 until 11.30am.  Please remember to return your books.
  • Please bring a face mask as you’ll need it to browse the BQ library and go to the loo
  • QFTH kits will be available
  • Show & Tell will be outside

If the forecast is for rain, or a maximum over 35 degrees, we will move to the hall and be open for one hour only 10.30am until 11.30am. This would not be a sit & sew, and there will be no tables or chairs set out.

  • The door to the hall will open to members at 10.30 am, no earlier. If you arrive prior to 10.30am, please wait outside the building
  • You must wear a face mask
  • You must enter via the front door of the library and exit via the rear door of the hall
  • check in to Bay Quilters using our QR code, and sign the attendance book
  • The library will be open from 10.30 until 11.30am. Time will be strictly observed
  • Please bring any Quilts from the Heart and Monster summer challenge blocks
  • QFTH kits will be available
  • There will be no Show & Tell, orphan rehoming table or Guest Speaker
  • Please do only what you need to do and exit via the rear door

We understand the disappointment in not having a monthly meeting as we know it. The committee is making decisions in light of the current case numbers, and we’re very aware of our duty to offer a safe environment for our members.

Looking forward to seeing you.
