After the cancellation of the December 2019 meeting due to the horrendous bushfires around the South Coast of NSW, it was great to see so many members attend the February 2020 meeting. There was much discussion about bushfire experiences. It was also amazing to witness the strength and determination members possess as well as people reaching out to help others less fortunate.
Due to Covid-19, the SCCQ have not met for most of 2020 and are unable to set a date for 2021 until retrictions are lifted for the Moruya Uniting Church. Advice will be provided to SCCQ members when we are able to meet.
SCCQ Workshops Grants
The recipients of the SCCQ Workshop Grants have been announced for 2020. Congratulations to Dalmeny and Bungendore who each received $500 towards their upcoming Workshops. Batemans Bay Patchworkers received $300 towards their annual luncheon. However, since that luncheon is not going ahead this year due to the venue being used by the NSW Government Bushfire Recovery effort, their grant will be rolled over.
SCCQ Quilt Show
Due to the continuing issues arising from Covid-19, the September 2020 Quilt Show was cancelled. Advice will be given later when next this event can be scheduled.
Many retailers up and down the South Coast of NSW have been affected by the bushfires and/or Covid-19.
Please support your local craft stores and other retailers during these times so hopefully we can keep them open in the future.
