Cosby Quilters monthly meeting held in Cosby community Church on Wednesday 05/11/14.
Approximately 60 members (including 9 visitors) attended the meeting this month, which was held on bonfire night. Jacquie, our chair was unable to be there, so Gina Cooke Chaired the meeting.
Our speaker Amanda, from Monkey buttons fame is known to many who attended, as ‘the bag lady’. It was bags which first made Monkey Buttons so popular with crafters, and she brought with her numerous bags which she spoke about. Also many other projects, including cushions, wall hangings and full sized quilts – all of which she has designed herself. She spoke to us about where she finds inspiration, and the details of her designs. She has a very practical approach, to designing and her bags included many useful features. A very interesting talk, enjoyed by all.
Our next meeting will be 03/12/14 when our speaker will be Brenda Roe, all were reminded to bring a plate of food along to be shared at that the Faith Supper.
Workshop held on the Thursday after the meeting
