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.
