September 10th 2010 meeting
The first meeting of the year was very busy with our summer challenge showing that lots of us were busy stitching while we enjoyed the break!
This month we had a great collection of fabulous entries and the winner was Rita Kelly.
Rebecca demonstrated a spider web scrap quilt.
As well as all the usual attractions, Moya from Patchwork Plus brought us her usual, extensive collection of fabrics and other exciting things.
This quilt top will be the October workshop.
Tracey Watson demonstrated a sample of the potential that the quilt designing
software ‘EQ6’ has to offer. The program offers quite dazzling opportunities to the computer-minded quilter and Tracey certainly bought it to life.
We will be getting together to design the items that we will make with the ‘High Planes’ painted panels from Colorado. We will be looking for groups that are prepared to organize their own small ‘quilting bees’ (or Stitch and Bitch sessions!!!) We need to have at least the pieces for the American’s completed before Christmas – so please do volunteer to host a group.
September was the time for membership, renewals and we were busy at the door taking forms and payment – please do remember to get your membership in to Lynda Broderick as soon as possible.
