As we approach the end of this extraordinary year we all must be thinking “what will we be able do to celebrate Christmas” … can we safely plan a family gathering, will social groups like ours be able to get together, if so … where and when ??

My friend-on-the-piano “Big Ted” raised an interesting point too … How will Santa Claus manage this year ?? Haha …Good point Ted.

Arcadian Quilters put their thinking caps on and firstly we have made the decision for our Christmas Challenge !!

Christmas Challenges are an interesting and creative way to make something for our homes, for a Christmas gift or even as a donation to brighten a room for someone else in care or in hospital. We had options last year to make A Bell Pull or to recreate a Christmas card in fabric. I’ll keep this year’s suggestion a secret until the end of the year!!

We’re still deciding on our venue for Christmas Lunch which may have to be in a member’s home or garden as the Galston Hall is still unavailable to us (due to our numbers). In the meantime Patchwork in the Park continues as does our work creating quilts for the groups we support.

We are looking forward to meeting with a representative from “Make a Wish” foundation at our next meeting on Wednesday, giving us yet another link to continue helping “out there in our community”. As always new members are very welcome to join us anytime.

Heritage Park in Castle Hill is a fun and lively place to meet, the surrounds always changing and the weather has been kind to us, also we are able to enjoy the use of ‘under cover’ seating and tables if necessary.

For further information please contact Carole on 9894 7749.

We meet on the first and third Wednesdays of every month at 10 am, come and join us, bring your own morning tea and a camp-chair, see what we do, share some ideas. We are definitely “on the way UP” … moving about and mixing with our friends and families is becoming easier / safer and very welcome.

Positive thinking, big smiles all round and stay safe.
