Whats coming up

Hi fellow quilters,

Remember there is no meeting in May as we are on retreat at Stacey's at the Gap. The next meeting is on the 24th June and we will be finishing stars or doing UFO's .

 I recently heard   a nicer term for all those beautiful things we quilters begin but not always finish   a   WISP  " work in slow progress"  mmm... I am sure  we all have some of 

Ladies going to Stacey's should pay remainder owing by this Friday. 

Happy sewing!

Embroidery and Recycle Challenge

Nothing like a challenge to get your creative side stitching.

We have 2 challenges on the go at the moment. 

 The Embroidery Challenge

The mystery embroidery challenge will see us receiving 3 stitcheries a month for the next 6 months  we can use all or some to create something by the November meeting finished or not thats ok.  Think outside of the block and remember it does not have to be a quilt.

The Recycle Challenge

We have to find something we would like to recycle
Take a photo before you begin to recycle it
50% of your new article must be made from the recycled article
The due date for the project is the October meeting.

Big or small it doesn't matter - see what you can use again.

There is a prize - viewers choice.


Remember June's meeting is finishing the stars or bring a ufo if you didn't start on the stars.
See you there !

Did you say recycle ?

Let your imagination go wild!
