QUILT AS YOU GO DEMO/BYO Sewing Afternoon

UFO/BYO Afternoon

Kathleen Nugent will be demonstrating her beautiful quilt-as-you-go-technique. Kathleen will show an easy way to use up your beautiful colourful scraps that you won’t want to wait to get home to start.

This sort of afternoon after the branch meeting is something we would like to introduce on a permanent basis, so that members who travel a long way, members who don't belong to a group, new members and beginners as well as all members can get together to enjoy their sewing and trade ideas and have a bit of fun with like-minded people. If these days are successful we will run them each month, so give your support and come along and meet your new quilting friends.

  • Lots and lots of fabric scraps (colour coordinated if desired!)
