Retreats and Wrokshops
Over the past four years I have had several patchwork and scrapbooking retreats and workshops. A couple of weeks ago we had a scrpabooking retreat. Girls came from the Jinderbyne area, Wollongong and Wagga plus a couple of local girls. We all had a great time. The photo is of the group and this is one of the layouts done on the weekend.
Last week I had a group of local ladies doing a machine embroidery wrokshop. Some of the ladies have just purchased large format embroidery machines and some already had them but were not confident in using them. The idea of the day was to get comfortable in setting up the embroidery units and loading the designs. One of the ladies is doing her version of the "Colour Purple Quilt" and one is doing a quilt with a ring of autralisn birds and flowers in the center. I shall keep you posted on these.
On the long weekend of October I was invited to submit a quilt for the Adaminaby CWA Quilt show. I put my cat wall hanging in and in won first prize in the wall hanging section.
