Vale Alysoun Ryves

Longstanding Guild Member, Alysoun Ryves passed away on Saturday worn out by a very brave battle with cancer. Alysoun generously contributed to the quilting community at all levels: as a driving force behind Hunters' Hill quilters; active participant of the Guild and Sydney Quilt Study Group; and as a contributor and technical advisor to Australian Patchwork & Quilting magazine. Alysoun has influenced many people and will not be forgotten.

There will be a service on Friday the 16th of November at 1:30pm at the Camellia Room, Macquarie Park, Plassey Rd North Ryde. This will be followed by a big party back at the the family house in Woolwich, everyone welcome. Wear whatever you think appropriate however Alysoun's family is encouraging people to wear bright colours and a flower.
