I`m running a bit late this month, what with September being the second Saturday!! Suddenly October is almost upon us and another meeting in person, we could get used to this!
The season of mists and mellow fruitfulness has come. The birds are feasting on the holly, rowan and elderberries and the Michaelmas Daisies and Autumn Crocus are flowering. Time to move indoors.
Our speaker on 1st October 2022 is Loretta O`Brien Patchwork and Quilting Loretta O’Brien Home Page
|Patchwork and Quilting Loretta O’Brien …|
Loretta has been involved in P&Q for over 40 years and teaches and exhibits worldwide, most recently at the European Patchwork Meeting. She is a great raconteur and will be bringing lots of quilts. Not to be missed.
