The General Meeting held last Wednesday at Stirling Adriatic Centre was very well attended. Plenty of members and visitors took the opportunity to view the stunning quilts by Robynne Vallence that were on display, before the official proceedings started. Photos of the quilts that were on display have been added to the WAQA website under Galleries.
Lesley Clugston presented the President’s Report, as required for a General Meeting, keeping it short and to the point with the main item of note being that WAQA is in a very sound financial position. Always good to hear!!
As an avid listener of ABC’s Conversations with Richard Fidler or Sarah Knowski, I thoroughly enjoyed WAQA’s version: ‘Robynne Vallence – Award-Winning Quilter on Conversations with Melodie Symes’
The audience was treated to an entertaining and enjoyable segment on Robynne, her story as a quilter, including how she made her first quilt using Business Cards as templates, and her involvement with WAQA, including various committee roles she filled.
The evening was made even more memorable when Leone`Formentin formally inducted Robynne as a Life Member of WAQA and presented her with the Life Member Badge. It was lovely to see members of Robynne’s family in attendance on this special occasion for her.
