September Meeting 2013

Sorry the blog editor has only just managed to update the blog from last months meeting.
It was a horrible stormy night and there weren't a lot of members who ventured out.
I must say the drive home for me was a little hair raising as I live way out in the bush.
This months committee challenge was quilts using fabric/embroidery.
Sheryle brought a Leanne's House quilt with embroidery.
General Show and Tell
Pat's Quilt
 Juliet's Pohutukawa Mariner's compass made for
 Aotearoa Quilters' red 12x12 challenge.
Other Pat with a pattern she always wanted to try.

Eastern Promise Workshop with Anna Williams

This weekend we had Anna Williams come and teach us her Eastern Promise class.
It was 2 days of great instruction and fun techniques.
There were eight ladies in the class and I am sure I speak for all
of them when I say it was a very good weekend and we all produced some
lovely work.  I look forward to seeing them all completed.
