June Meeting

 Our June meeting brought us a beautiful sunny evening, so welcome after many cool grey days.  

Our speaker Dawn Cameron Dick had an equally sunny disposition.

Dawn is a textile artist and teacher of many years experience.  It was the progression of these years that led to the title "One Woman Show".

We saw her very first quilt, in fact she had forgotten it until her son produced it for "renovation" for his own child having kept it since his own childhood.

We saw her quilts in chronological  order and she explained her ideas and methods which led to the development of her own style.

We saw her signature technique of invisible machine applique and those who joined her the next day for her workshop also had a chance to use reverse hand applique.

Dawn was an excellent speaker with great humour.  Interestingly although she sews commissions her love is of teaching rather than being competitive.

One could not fail to be impressed with her volume of quilting even on large quilts, many of them being hand quilted.
