Our Christmas Party with Show and Tell
Speaker Stacy Day
Stacy entertained us with stories as she talked about the inspiration for the quilts in her book “Child’s Play”. It was delightful to see how her colours and techniques worked together to make beautiful quilts both children and adults would love to have.
Amazing Applique – November class
Instructors Gail Newell and Moreen Rutherford split the day. In the morning Gail walked the class through machine applique from Pattern to finishing. We started with stitching ‘alien blobs’ and the brave graduated to sea creatures. In the afternoon Moreen displayed a huge variety of projects and then got the class started on their own mini project, a Hawaiian, elephant or butterfly applique.
October Outreach Quilts
At our October meeting Martha Todd talked about quilt making delightfully slightly wonky designs, curves and using whole fabric. We were intrigued by her journey into hand dying with both dyes and rust!
Cultural Days September 29, 2018. Kids making paper bag books with great concentration put together some cool projects surrounded by fabric art of all sorts.
