Signature Month and Sewing Machines!

13 Mar

This month members were treated to a lively talk from GQ member Gayney Jones. Gayney brought along a Signature quilt she won in a raffle to support MS and what a stunning quilt it is! Signed by an array of famous people including Joanna Lumley, Nick Faldo and Victoria Wood, it is beautifully made using 4 inch blocks.


Gayney was 1st prizewinner again when she made this lovely quilt to commemorate the Centenary of the WI. She made best use of the fabrics, colours and design to show off all the things the WI stood for  in the past and carries forward with passion into the future.


Gayney brought a selection of Christmas things she has made to inspire members. We were all eager to have a closer look in preparation for this year!



A rail fence quilt was one of the first things Gayney made. This poppy hanging is beautiful.

 We had a queue of machines waiting for servicing by Mark Pickles of Bath Sewing Studio today.  The service was very thorough with each machine being treated to a good clean, adjustment and a new needle with lots of expert advice on hand for problems. To be recommended! They also brought along a great range of fabrics for us to browse and choose from. A busy day and fabrics too!
