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.
Meetings are scheduled as normal but in a Covid safe way every 2 months.
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
The September 2020 Quilt Show was cancelled due to the bushfires and Covid. However the SCCQ is pleased to announce the planning of their next Quilt Show, 16-18 September 2022 at the Batemans Bay Soldiers Club. Let's hope it can go ahead!
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.
