On Mondaywe had a Speaker at our meeting. Jean Phillips came along with her vast array of Quilts. She has won prizes at major quilt shows in the UK and teaches workshops two or three times a week. She 'blamed' her sister for getting her started. Once she had made her first quilt she was hooked and now has a huge stash.
This monster won first prize at Sandown Quilt Show. We were all amazed at the amount of work she produces and thoroughly enjoyed her visit.
Next month we have another Speaker for the morning. Jane Brenchley will be coming to talk to us about 'Rocky and his Miniature Quilts.'
She has also asked that people attending bring a hand sewing kit and a small piece of felt measuring approximatley 18 inches.
In April we are having a Catch-Up and Pot Luck Lunch Day. We are hoping that members and visitors alike will bring along their unfinished projects. Everyone is asked to bring a small dish of food which will be shared along with all the others. This will be a good social occasion and everyone is welcome.
