This month we have been sewing a clam bag, handy for a variety of purposes from small to larger items.
We have been learning to use the clubs Go-Cutter and Westalee Rulers and are looking forward to ‘quilt as you go’ at the end of the month.
Some of the ideas are working with Mylar Confetti and left-over thread to make your own fabric.
Some of the girls enjoy knitting, crocheting, colouring, hand embroidery, making quilts utilising scraps of various fabrics, having a laugh and a talk whilst enjoying coffee/tea with a scrumptious morning tea that our ladies supply.
Not only do we make quilts of all shapes and sizes, we do make smaller items such as bags, cup holders, table runners, placemats, etc.
So it does not have to be a quilt you make if you want to come and join us. You do not need an expensive machine if you are learning, just a straight sewing machine is good enough.
We have quite a few interesting projects in the year as well as a few bus trips, so if you are interested please join us.
We are always looking for new members and we are a friendly group. Even if you have never done patchwork or would like to learn to sew, come along, there is always someone to help you.
We meet on Tuesdays at 9am at the Community Complex, corner of Tin Can Bay Rd and Bayside Drive, next door to the Cooloola Bowls Club.
