After some consultation and deliberation and a bit of working out we have decided to put the Julie Latcham workshop on the 16th and 17th November.  A few of us couldn't attend on the original date so Gail very kindly reorganised things and thanks to those ladies who didn't mind changing. 

 This is our major workshop for the year where we have a guest tutor so its best we have as many attend as possible.  The saturday night ( 16th)  will also be our Christmas Party. We will go to the Victoria Hotel for dinner together.

This workshop is fully funded by the Regional Arts Development Fund  (RADF ) .  We have to hold a display of the work when its completed. The workshop will cost $ 20 per day.
This is to cover hall hire and the majority of the lunch and we will have  to bring some salad and morning and afternoon tea as normal.

It is at the Golden Age Centre   8.00am till 4.00pm Saturday  and 8.00 to 3.00pm Sunday.  Julie will take 20 in the workshop so if you haven't signed up please do it  ASAP to ensure a place. It will be advertised in the argus next week.

We want you to know  that you dont have to make a quilt. You can make smaller items to learn the technique. ( Wall hanging, table runner, placemats etc, A  24 " cushion you can also come along and work down the end of the hall doing your own sewing while watching the quilt being  created. There is a lot of flexibility here. Your appliqué can be of your own choice. Colours and design can be the same of any you want to do yourself. The pictures below show some quilts being made the Moonie Fine Arts group.

Julie is "Cow Paddocks Patchwork".
