Christmas in July

The club rooms were a hive of activity for the annual fundraiser for a chosen charity at Christmas with the Christmas in July theme and the viewing and judging of the pin cushion challenge. There are some very creative ladies when it comes to designing.



 
Ena with her pincushion won 1st place.
Trish came 2nd with her replica of the soldier's hat.
Linda won 3rd prize with her pincushion.

 
The tables were filled with delicious food also to help celebrate the day.

Then there were quilts on display that members have been busy completing for the exhibition in September.

Quilts on display, Cuppa for Cancer


Lots of members have been busy lately. These are a few quilts that have been displayed at the meeting days.






The club held a Cuppa for cancer morning tea. The theme was to dress as an odd bod.
There were some interesting ways to dress up or down. These are the winners who were very creative.
 A Scrumptious morning tea was served with the best china.

 Genell wore her hat with odd balls hanging off it.


Don't you love Valdaries shoes, they were woollen and handmade.
Some quilts were also on display

Workshops

It has been a hive of activity lately at the sewing days. The club recently held a workshop with Lisa Walton showing us her Fantastic Fusion technique.





We all had a fabulous time and now look forward to seeing some stunning results.

One of the club members also led a class making a mystery quilt. After 3 sewing days which had everybody guessing what the pattern was going to be like, all was revealed and everyone very pleased with the result.


 A few of the tops completed by some very eager sewers.





There were so many different colours and they all looked fabulous.

This quilt is a WIP. The club's librarian has been very busy sorting out books and finding interesting designs. She came across this one and had to start making it. Lovely batik colours.
