Glamorgan Quilters May 2019 Newsletter

Hello Everyone,

I will be away for the next meeting on 11th May so I hope you all enjoy it! I’m sorry not to be hearing the speaker Katherine Guerrier, her work looks amazing! I look forward to hearing all about it and seeing the photos.There is a lot happening over the next couple of months so I will try and get it all in.

Firstly, the Sandie Lush workshop is taking place on 10th May in Ystradowen Village Hall. As I am away Gabby is very kindly going to unlock and lock the hall. There will be tea and coffee but don’t forget to bring a packed lunch. The project is “Glorious Welsh Quilting.”

Wendy Surridge entries need to be in at the June meeting. We will number them quietly and vote at this meeting.

Salinder has been busy organising the trip to Malvern on the 18th May which is leaving Cowbridge Town Hall at 8.30am. I have got a long shopping list already! Contact Salinder with any enquiries by  phone on 07796 697158 or by Email

Salinder will bring the Sew Along Sampler block patterns that you have chosen to the meeting, along with some fabric. If you missed it and want to join in, there is no rush, I will bring the books back in June so that you can choose a block. I am looking to make something fun, modern and very bright but to use some very traditional techniques that reflect our group. If you can bring along a piece of fabric – any size but bright in colour, to the meeting that would be great. Red, blue yellow green would be fantastic, as bright as possible. Thank you to everyone who has signed up already. We will have over 40 blocks to put together so with any luck there will be 2 quilts to raffle by the time we have finished.

We are planning a trip to see the Kaffe Fassett’s Quilts in America exhibition at the American Museum in Bath on Saturday 6th July. There will be an opportunity to look at the gardens too. See Salinder Gammage to put your names down.

The next GOLDWORK/UFO day is at Ystradowen village Hall on Sunday 2nd June between 10am and 3.30pm. If anyone is interested in joining them or for more information, contact Salinder Gammage.

Thank you again to everyone who lent pieces of work for the opening of the Annex at Ystradowen Village Hall it was much appreciated and enjoyed by all who visited.

We are already planning the Summer Lunch for July and this time it will be bring a plate. The committee will provide tea coffee and soft drinks and there will be a list available to indicate whether or not you will be attending so that we can get an idea of numbers, and to say what you can bring.
