Oh Joy!

19 Oct

Our speaker this month was Joy Salvage. It was indeed “Oh Joy!” Her work is outstanding. Such tiny log cabins and exquisite pineapples, with designs to die for. What an inspiring hour and a delight to listen to someone young and so enthusiastic about traditional patchwork. She is a very clever lady!

Joy took up quilting after graduating from Bath Spa University where she studied Creative Arts: art & textiles. She says that since then her life has changed and she is a ‘quilter’ through and through.

Have a look at Joy’s website to see her beautiful work and the Quilters’ Guild website for more and to book her to speak, or do a workshop!

This month we started making the decorations for the Christmas tree to go into Holy Cross Church Christmas Tree Festival and as usual, members got to work with enthusiasm. A lovely display to look forward to.
