Glamorgan Quilters November 2019.

Dear All,

            Our meeting this month is an “everyone sew” day, making covered notebooks and bunting.

There will be two different ways to cover notebooks for you to try and while the bunting was a suggestion to decorate the hall, for Christmas, you could make some for yourself. I will bring the Sissix machine and the alphabet letters if you would like to make Merry Christmas bunting.

            There will be sign up sheets for:

1)The Regional Day on Saturday 30th November, Jennie Rayment is the speaker.

2) Food for the December/Christmas lunch.

3)Helping to serve food and clear up after the lunch.

Requirements for notebooks.

I will bring my sewing machine and I think we can plug in 12 machines. So if you would like to bring your machine and are willing to share it that would be good.

An A5 notebook, could be spiral bound, one with a hard cover is easiest to work with.

Wadding and a piece of inner or lining fabric at least 2” larger than the opened notebook.

Cover can be all one fabric, or pieced so bring an assortment of fabrics, possibly, lace, “Bondaweb”  for applique, buttons, beads and threads.

Ideas might be a landscape, sky, grass, trees, flowers, cut strips of different widths and trying out decorative machine stitches, or crazy patchwork.

If you wish to make bunting with letters then please bring fabric and “Bondaweb”

Please don’t feel you have to bring everything on the list I am sure we can share supplies.

Our next meeting will be Saturday 14th. December

Perhaps you could bring any Christmas items you have made to show before lunch.

Then we have “Half Tidy” to entertain after lunch

Looking forward to seeing on Saturday, I hope we can have a fun day making and sharing ideas to produce some gifts or donations for one of the many Craft Fairs about at this time of year.

If you have any quilt related news you would like me to include in the next newsletter then please contact me.
