We Can Contribute to Fellow Sewers in Cambodia

On behalf of Judy Van Dyck.

Her husband is a member of Sunbury Rotary. They are sending a container of goods to disadvantaged groups in Cambodia. The request is for any of your unused or no longer required items involved with sewing.
This can include fabric, scissors, pins, needles, threads, unpickers -  the list is limitless. If you have any items please bring them along on a Tuesday to give to Judy.
All items gratefully accepted.

A great reason to have a clear out and clean up.  I couldn't believe how many pairs of scissors I had!!

After Our AGM

Congratulations to our new leadership team.  

We look forward to another vibrant, busy year.


Check out the show and tell contributions from our last meeting-

Kay brought her “Movement” challenge that she forgot  to bring to the  Christmas in July celebration. A great effort Kay.


She also completed this little bag-


Andrea showed us her recycled antique American quilt made from feedsack material. ( I hope that's right!)




Check out the material on the back.




Ann Mi has completed a magnificent Bargello quilt and sought advice for quilting it.  Can you help her with your ideas?



She also showed us her colourful 'Once Upon a Time' quilt.

Christmas in July 2016

Our annual celebration was a lovely day of sharing and enjoying each others' company.  The two elves, Janice and Jocelyn were delighted with the variety of projects completed for the challenge.  Everyone was rewarded for their efforts, even those who forgot to bring their work on the day! We had to use the provided black tone on tone fabric and feature it prominently while also demonstrating movement. Check out our efforts below.





In the afternoon Maureen D. was presented with her well deserved trophy from the Quilt Show where she won the Viewer's Choice award.   Her name now sits proudly with Esmae's.  Maureen will keep the trophy for 2 years.



Check out Maureen's latest baby quilt top-


Janice provided us with a very cute project to hand sew- a little felt bird badge.
It was quick, easy and fun!  




Take a peek at some of the tasks our members were working on during the day!




All in all a great day!  Thanks Evelyn and her helpers as well as our elves, Janice and Jocelyn!  Who will be the next elves and what will they ask us to do?  All will be revealed at our December Christmas lunch!

Another wonderful Show and Tell

Barb B. didn't have her new candlewicking quilt ready for this quilt show but watch out next time!  it is a magnificent effort.  Look closely at the detail.







There is no stopping Sheila.  Here are her latest wonderful efforts.  The red and white stitchery would have been great for the 50 shades of red challenge.





And finally but most importantly, Sheila's friend has made these beautiful little baby hats and booties to donate to the Sunshine Hospital for the littlest babies who do not survive at birth.
