Thread Play and Free Motion Quilting.

17 Apr

Jan Webster shared her knowledge with members today when she gave us a tutorial on machine quilting and a talk about thread play. Jan joined our group in September and was persuaded to step in when our trader was unable to come to the meeting. This is a great way for everyone to get to know Jan and to learn a little something along the way. When it comes to free motion quilting I need all the help I can get!

Jan’s talk about thread was a revelation! There are so many things to know, even down to the needles. How I love threads and who knew we don’t have to spend too much money! If you would like to watch a
Dr Bob tutorial on YouTube go to Thread Play

Then visitor Sue from CLIC, the Craft Group that meets in Colwinston, brought along some of the quilts they have made.
Since last September they have been working on 3 large wall hangings, one
patchwork ,one knitting and crochet and one made of felt . These are going
to be exhibited at the Wonderwool Wales show on the Royal Welsh Showground that takes place on April – 27th and 28th. Sue brought along the wonderful patchwork rainbow hexagons, so you will have to go along to the show to see it, and all the other delights at the show.
