Show and Tell from Textile Artists

This year has been one of growth for our Toowoomba Quilters Textile Artists Group.  (TQ TAG).

We meet just once a month on the third Saturday of each month along with the Community Quilters.  We are all loving our new venue at "The Court" - Glenvale Baptist Church, 100 Glenvale Road.  
If you are a member of Toowoomba Quilters, please feel free to join us at any time.  If you are not a member,but have a keen interest in Textile Art, you are most welcome to check us out and if you want to join the club, we would love to have you along.

Here are some pictures of recent show and tell from the TAG Group.

At our next meet up we are going to be using the felted balls we made back in March with Chris Dowell in various projects.

Happy Textile Arting,

Club Activities

The club has been very busy hosting sewing days for the younger generation during the school holidays. There were some eager young sewers guided along by there Grandma or friend to learn the basics of sewing squares together.

The club has also had a challenge for members to make a wallhanging with a vase of flowers.
The wallhangings were displayed and judged by silent voting for the most creative, bright and the best vase. It was very hard to make a decision. It was also a celebration for the annual Christmas in July day. A quilt was donated to the Toowoomba Community Baptist Church to help them with their fundraising.
 1st prize for the most creative
 2nd prize for the most colourful
 The best vase.

 Runner up for the most colourful
