January Meeting

The January meeting was a demo night, with 3 branch members giving different demonstrations to branch members.

Paula Rafferty showed how to make fabric pictures using the Laura Wasilowski technique.

 Grania Preston showed how to do paper lamination.

Claire Lynch gave 2 demo's. One demo showed how to make paper beads and the other how to use glue as a resist when painting/dyeing fabrics.

We also had a lot of show and tell on the night.

One of our new members Ruth Bourke showed us this lovely Halloween quilt she recently finished. Ruth also showed us a cushion she made using the economy block  which is a bit hit on quilting blogs at the moment.
