March Speaker

Our speaker for March is Moira Neal and her talk is entitled "A View from my Kitchen Table and how it inspired a quilt".

When her mother was no longer able to wear her pretty summer dresses, Moira used them to make a quilt. She added torchon lace made by her mother, a skilled lacemaker. Moira has a preference for appliqué and she usually machine quilts in her individual style using black threads, a technique she has taught in workshops. 

Moira Neal is a free machine artist and she loves to up cycle old cotton sheets to use in her work.  She enjoys dyeing, printing, stamping, marbling and appliqueing them to create her own unique cloth.  She no longer makes large bed quilts and now concentrates on making quirky work which she can use for her range of greetings cards.
