We came back to quilting last month refreshed and ready to start a new year of projects.

We have Deanne who is going to teach a class on making a bag that is suitable to carry your laptop, tablet, iPad etc.

The following week we have Jo, who is showing us how to make a cup bag to carry our cups and mugs to craft/quilting.

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. It does not have to be a quilt you make, if you want to come and join us.

We also have people who make clothes, and if you want to learn to sew we would love to help you. You do not need an expensive machine if you are learning, just a straight sewing machine is good enough.

We have some great projects in the pipeline; if you are interested, just come along. We will have quite a few projects in the year, as well as a few bus trips, so you are welcome to join us!

We are always looking for new members,and we are a friendly group. If you have never done patchwork or would like to learn to sew, there is always someone to help you.
