November Meeting- Talk by textile artist Sarah Impey

18-11-2018

Words are what talented textile artist Sarah Impey loves to work with. Drawing on her career as a political journalist, Sarah's incredible quilts are filled with the words that inspire her. In her own words,Sarah states 'I am interested in the stitched word: the point at which the visual, verbal and textural come together.' 

Sarah's quilt designs are very original and unique, pushing the boundaries of what a quilt actually is to the extreme. She has exhibited her quilts extensively, both at home and abroad,and anyone who hasn't seen her impressive textile art,when you do,unlike Sarah you will be lost for words.

Our own talented members shared some of their beautiful quilts with us too.

Our members have also been busy making quilts for Project Linus, and I am sure these beautiful and colourful quilts will bring some much needed comfort to children who are experiencing difficulty in their young lives.

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.
