The Hardy Quilters is a Patchwork and Quilting group based in Weymouth, Dorset. Meetings are held on every third Monday of the month at Osmington Village Hall from 10 a.m. till 12 noon. Various workshops are held throughout the year as well as visits from Guest Speakers, many of whom are nationally known.
New members of all levels of skill are invited to join. Beginners are welcome and will be able to take advantage of the wealth of knowledge that is contained within the group.
It has been such a long time since I wrote on this Blog and for that I apologise. The main reason for this is that I keep getting technical problems with Blogger and keep receiving messages that an unauthorised sign in has occurred in all parts of the world!! The latest this week has been in Massachusetts. This is very tiresome and means that I have to keep changing passwords just as I have got used to the current one, so I must admit I lost my patience and left the whole thing alone for a while.
Last month we had a workshop with Kathryn Chambers. This was a great day. Kathryn's work is simply amazing and she is a very generous teacher. I will post photographs below of her work. Everyone who came to the workshop thoroughly enjoyed it but I don't know how many have completed what they have started!!
The other bit of news is that Del Whitfield one of our members and our Treasurer won Judges' Choice at the South West Quilters Exhibition at West Point, Exeter, with her quilt 'Black and White and Daisies all over'. We were very excited when we arrived to look at the Quilts and saw that Del's had a Rosette on it.
Kathryn Chambers beautiful work.
