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 to recover as well as how people are reaching out to help others less fortunate.
Show and Share photos from the meeting has been added in the Gallery page.
Due to Coronavirus circumstances, unfortunately we do not have a date for our next 2020 meeting.
SCCQ Annual General Meeting
The SCCQ AGM is held in August of each year however due to current restrictions the AGM has now been deferred to October 2020.
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 have been 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.
Many of our local stores are trading at this point in time. Its important to contact them to determine hours of operation and make arrangements to visit.
Please support your local craft stores and other retailers during these times so hopefully we can keep them open in the future.
