Showcase a Member
Thank you to Julie-Ann for your presentation of your quilting journey tonight. Your quilting style certainly has evolved from soft pastels to bright wool applique.
Show & Tell – After the Christmas break, members had a lot to share.
Kim is busily working on her Sue Spago BOM.
Jeanette brought along a lovely knitted knee rug, and also a Millefiore quilt that she is paper piecing.
Irene is decorating hexagons from Val’s quilt.
Bronwyn had an exciting “tell” – a new little grandbaby is on the way! Congratulations.
Rosemary had lots of show & tell. First she showed her Hardanger runner that she has been working on for the past year. She then told a heart-warming story about her dear friend and colleague, Mavis, Peacock who was mentioned in an article in Inspirations Magazine. Next was a tiny smocked matinee jacket for a baby, and an heirloom baby smock. Finally Rosemary showed the lovely summer nightie she made for herself.
Suzie was busily crocheting an afghan rug.
Lorraine brought along a beautiful Jim Thompson scarf. Jim Thompson’s design & production of scarfs, ties, & cushion covers has brought a reserection to the silk trade in Hong Kong. (Kim noted here that he is an American!)
Annie made a wheelchair bag for Gladys.
Flick brought along an intricate cross-stitched horse which had been given to a friend who does not sew.
Finally Judy made a bright quilt for her grandson’s BIG bed using a cheater panel from the shop.
