Speaker for May Meeting

The speaker for the May Meeting is Anja Townrow.  The talk is entitled "Flower Festival"

Since the late Eighties she has developed her skills by trying out the different techniques in the by then more widely available American books and magazines.  During the early 90’s, she made many bed quilts to commission, which enabled her to learn her craft through practice and experience.  In 1993, Anja set up ‘Dutch Quilts’ when she started to sell her first patchwork kits at Craft Fairs, and her range of patterns remains available under the ‘Dutch Quilts’ label.  After teaching a weekly class for six years, Anja now travels extensively to give lectures and workshops throughout the UK and Europe.

April Meeting

What a lovely relaxing workshop we  had on the Wednesday afternoon.  It was refreshing just to sit and hand sew. Gilli had some really inspiring patterns to choose from. We all got down to sewing very quickly to produce our Kantha sewing to be framed into a picture.

The evening talk by Gilli was enjoyed by all and over far to quick. Her work was beautiful and gave us insight into her sewing world.

Lovely to see you all. Have a super month, plenty of sewing for next months show and tell.
