December Meeting

The talk for December is entitled "Home Made Quilts".  Jacquie Durber and Pat Screaton will be showing us quilts most of which have been made by Jill Cawrey.

Don't forget to bring food for the faith supper after the talk or any show and tell you may have completed.

Chris will bring haberdashery and materials in aid of Bloodwise and take away any scraps for recycling.  Please remember to bring any quilts for her to take to the hospital.

Pat Screaton will be bringing the flower club sales table.

There will also be the group sales table and the raffle.

We look forward to seeing you all.

November Meeting

Our speaker for November Moira Neale, entertained us with her illustrated talk on "Tuscany in Photographs".

She no longer makes large bed quilts but brought plenty of examples of her current small ones.

She showed us views of Tuscany and alongside were her interpretations in fabric and paint, the background often being achieved by the application of tea bags to old cotton sheets.

Moira explained her method of free machine quilting and her enthusiastic use of quirky colours for the details.  We were soon aware that the familiar tree shapes were almost certainly not green!
