Our meetings vary - we have talks and workshops, show and tell - we also have lots of weekend workshops and playdays. For details of what's coming up (and what's been and gone!) check out our programme below...

Inbetweeners - Wyn's Strip Quilt
Wyn brought this lovely strip quilt to show us. She made it from one large "jellyroll" of strips which she had bought at one of the shows. In theory, for an experienced machine stitcher, it should take an hour to sew the strips together - I guess that it would take most of us a little longer but it would still be manageable in a day. You would then have to add the wadding and backing. Hopefully we will soon see the finished article!
