Report on the Friendship meeting- October 2014

The last Friendship meeting of the Jacaranda Quilters Guild took place on the 11th of Oct 2014, on which occasion the AGM also took place.

The alternative venue (Hatfield Christian Church) worked very well, as the hall is large and there is ample safe parking for everyone.

As per usual there were lots of beautiful quilts on display, and the winners of the Scrappy Quilt competition were also announced. Congratulations to all these worthy contestants!


The winners of the different categories were:

  • Beginners Category First prize – Natasja van Wyk
  • Beginners Category Second prize – Jossie Williams
  • Beginners Category Third prize – Annetjie Verdoes
  • Experienced Category First prize – Alet Davey
  • Experienced Category Second prize – Marianne Niemandt
  • Experienced Category Third prize – Marianne Niemandt
  • Viewers’ Choice – Santie Vorster
