July 2014 Newsletter                Meeting Thursday 17th.July


‘The Quilt’ is gathering pace and there was another inspiring display of English piecing blocks last month. How did you get on with your trapunto? We all look forward to another fascinating Show and Tell. Don’t worry if you are a bit behind, we shall have some ‘catch up’ time in the autumn.


This month the demonstration will be applique and/or piecing –– this is the large block at the bottom right of the quilt and will include a building of some sort. This is a big block - finished size is 18½" x 20½" - but there will be lots of help and ideas available from Chris. There are templates attached if you want to get ahead.


In August it will be the small block near the bottom of the quilt and the technique will be stained glass window, so there will be some ideas on display. Then there will only be one block to go!


This month we have the trader JuBerry visiting us, so bring your purses and be ready to be tempted! If you have seen their stock before you will know that they have some gorgeous fabrics, many you will not have seen before, if you have not seen their stock before you are in for a treat!


The library – will be back this month, so do have a look, there are some fascinating books, useful for information and inspiration. Use it or lose it! 

Do let us know of any shows in the area, interesting shops you have visited or web sites you have found so that we can pass on the information to others.
