A Busy Day at GQ HQ!

12 Mar

There was no shortage of energy at Glamorgan Quilters today.

There was much to do on the activites table with a number of Japanese folded patchwork squares needing to be completed ready for the sewing up day on Tuesday. Many thanks to those who put their own sewing aside to help with the task. Your support was very much appreciated.

Also, a big thank you to Wendy Floyd who demonstrated how to make a pleated square. Sadly, we didn’t manage to capture the moment with photos but hopefully there will be an opportunity next month.

We were thrilled at the response to our call for craft items. At today’s meeting we received a wonderful array of items for which we are eternally grateful ….and look forward to receiving more in the coming months.

After lunch we welcomed Kathy Williams, Chair of the Glamorgan Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers who gave a talk about her work. But, before starting her talk she set members up with a short exercise on how to make a braid – which engaged them for the whole hour of her talk!
