On Tuesday Gail Chalker from Sew Creative in Gatton visited us as a guest speaker. She spent the morning educating and entertaining a large group of members who are always receptive to ideas, experience and techniques that fellow quilters are willing to share.

Mention has been made in previous blogs about the excellent range of resources available to our members. Our club owns an accuquilt fabric cutter. Gail is an experienced user of this type of cutter and was keen to encourage a relatively new member, Verna, to use the Club's equipment.
There was a delightful range of quilts adorning our meeting room walls this week for Show and Tell. Here's a sample.

In our meeting rooms we use skirt hangers on the picture rails to display our quilts informally. Some readers may be interested to see this photo, taken last year, of our quilts stands being assembled as part of the early preparations for the formal hanging of quilts at last year's Exhibition at the Salo Centre.
