Glamorgan Quilters in Action

6 Oct

Glamorgan Quilters was a hive of activity yesterday with plans for the Christmas tree in the Holy Cross Church, collecting money for the Christmas lunch alongside what looked like a very interesting and productive workshop!

This year the Glamorgan Quilters Christmas tree, which will be on display with many others, will be adorned with little fabric trees made from Suffolk Puffs.

A small group were busy cutting out the fabrics needed which were then distributed to members for completion. If anyone would like to make a tree they are most welcome. If you need instructions about how to make them please email Lynne Wheeler at Catsfouryou@yahoo.co.uk

In another room Deborah O’Hare was instructing members on how to make landscapes from scraps of fabric.

Liz and Enid looked very happy with her work as did Jackie.

And, whilst Gayney was busy concentrating we were busy admiring her necklace made from buttons.

A short wander round those who weren’t involved in the workshop revealed some stunning pieces of work, including hand finished applique

And, of course there is always time for a hard earned cuppa and a chat!

Jeannie and Jane

Next month (2 November) Janice Gunner will be entertaining members (non members also welcome) with a talk entitled Pastime to Profession. Plus, on the Sunday (3 November) she will be running a workshop in Ystradowen Village hall. The workshop ‘Triange Trickery & Secret Squares’ will show how to make little triangles and square patches which will add an extra dimension to your work. There are a couple of places available so if you would like to attend email montanajeannie@hotmail.com to book a place.
