Recently BUS member Maureen, got in touch with us to say that her quilting group had decided to nominate BUS as the beneficiaries of a raffle being held at the Royston, Arts Festival on the 28th and 29th September 2013.
Maureen is a keen quilter and made the beautiful quilt being raffled, herself. We are delighted to advertise the event in case any of our members would like to drop in or even join the quilting group.
Here is a bit about Priory Quilters which Maureen belongs to:
Priory Quilters started twenty years ago – we are celebrating our birthday with a garden party in August. There have been times when membership has been about 100 but now we have between 20 and 30 members. We meet once a month in the evening and have speakers, do it ourselves evenings and help desks. Also once a month some of us meet in the afternoon. We hold workshops and UFO (unfinished objects) days on the occasional Saturday and usually have one outing a year. Our quilt show is held in association with the Royston Arts Festival every two years. This year the show is on September 28 and 29 in the upstairs room at the Town Hall, Royston Hertfordshire SG8 7DA, from 10 to 4.30. There is disabled access and entry is free. New members are always welcome.
Thank you so much for taking this initiative. We wish you the best of luck and look forward to hearing how it all goes and if any member wants to pop into the exhibition, we know Maureen will be delighted to see you.
