May Meeting and Workshop

We had a visit from Joan Smith, who started Cosby quilters from her home over 25 years ago. Due to illness Joan had not been for a while so it was very nice to see her.

Anja gave us a wonderful talk on her work ,  it was very entertaining and a chance for us to see what we were doing on her workshop the next day.

We all eagerly turned up Thursday morning with machines  and a variety of threads ready for the day. Getting started with a copy of the chosen pattern everyone had a wonderful day using the various stitches on our machines we don't normally get to experiment with. We all copied more patterns to take home and use after the workshop. A very inspiring and enjoyable workshop.

A date has been set for the Creative Messy Play day on the 11th July.

Hope you all have a great May with the sunshine and look forward to seeing you in June for another month with 2 workshops.
