Catherine Lawes was our speaker this evening. Catherine is a Textile Artist from New Zealand. Catherine showed us many pieces of her work which have been inspired by her time spent in New Zealand. Catherine also modeled for us some interesting coats that she has made.
This evening we started by presenting cheques to our chosen charities with proceeds from last year’s quilt show.
We then had a very informative talk from Steve Moore from Stitchagain. Steve went through the common problems he encounters from sewists when repairing sewing machines and gave us some hints and tips on how to avoid some of these problems occurring.
It was so nice to see a full house this evening I do not think there were many members who did not attend, thank you for your support ladies.
We started with the AGM and then moved on to a varied display of ‘show and tell’ from our members. We saw work from our Christmas Fun Day and from various workshops which have been held during the past year and a few personal items of work, all beautifully put together.
Below are items made at our Christmas Fun Day.
Below is a slide show or various items made at our workshops and independently by members.
We followed up the Show and Tell with a very interesting talk from the ‘Stop Domestic Abuse’ charity who came to collect a cheque for £1000 raised from the funds of our Raffle Quilt made this year.
