This month’s Sewing meetings were very popular with lots of members braving the weather to attend. There was a lot going on even without a shop in attendance. A major attraction was the display of some fabulous quilts from the Blackboy Hill Quilters group. There was plenty of opportunity to admire the quilts and it was wonderful to have so many of the quilters in attendance. The Blackboy Hill Quilters also supplied the lovely morning tea and evening supper. With Cathie’s guidance the members of the group ran a very enjoyable show ‘n’ tell that featured many of their quilts in addition ..read more

Just to let you know the first rule of BYO Machine Night is that you do NOT have to bring a Machine. If you like doing handwork, whether it is applique, piecing, quilting or sewing, you are very welcome to attend. If you would like to bring your machine, then please do so, as there will be power cords available and plenty of tables (set up in a different manner to Sewing Day and Sewing Night). If neither of those options work for you, but you have a quilt to sandwich, then bring that along, as the table tennis table will be available to use and provides a large flat surface. As an added bo ..read more

Whilst having a bowl of soup for lunch today, I realised that this time last week I was heading to SAC to help out with setting up for the QuiltWest Judging Weekend. It was an incredibly busy weekend, with members braving the cold weather to turn up and help out with getting approximately 170 quilts photographed and judged. The soup provided by Lesley Warren and Gwen Parry for lunch on Saturday was just what everyone needed to warm up on a very very cold day. There was not one, but three choices of soup available, with some people having a cup of each of the soups, and others going for second ..read more

One of the activities available for members at the Sewing Meetings are Pop-Ups. A pop-up is a short 10-20 minute demonstration by a WAQA member of a technique, product or item to make. Sometimes instructions are provided so members can try out the technique or make the item. At the May meetings, Gwen did a demonstration on how to make a book cover. There was a lot of interest from the members attending and so it was just wonderful at the June Sewing Day to see the six completed book covers that Helen Smith made. At the April meetings, Phil did a demonstration on easy sew squares. Everyon ..read more
