October Meeting

13-10-2018

Our October meeting gave us the opportunity to snap up a few bargains at our members annual stash sale. We also continued making items for our May 2019 exhibition sales table.

A few of our members exhibited their beautiful quilts at the Quilters Guild Region 2 quilt show at  Hever Castle in September and one of our very talented members, Doreen Plumridge won the visitors choice prize. These photos of their exhibition quilts were taken by member Jan Godding, who also entered a quilt. 

September Meeting

17-09-2018

It's hard to believe we are only three months away from our Christmas meeting, where does the time go? Our meeting in September was all about preparing for our upcoming 2019 exhibition. We got together around the tables in groups to make handcrafted items for our exhibition sales table. 

Our first meeting of the new GQ improv group is to be held next month, and looks to be well attended by members looking to try something different.

Many of our members brought in beautiful quilts and other items they have made to share with us for 'show and tell'. There were quilts made for Project Linus, baby quilts for the Royal Surrey premature baby unit, fidget mats for the dementia patients as well as quilts made for friends and family.

July Meeting

14-07-2018

Our July meeting was so enjoyable, with the incredibly talented,creative and hilarious Jenny Raiment entertaining us and making us laugh throughout her talk. Jenny also showed us her beautiful quilts which were made using fabric folding techniques, and brought along several of her books on the technique for us to buy. She had us in stitches from start to finish. Here are a few of Jenny's quilts. 

Our members' show and tell' never disappoints us, highlighting as always the talent, enthusiasm and joy we all have for our craft.
