Quilters Guild News

dsc02462We have continued to offer ‘taster’ sessions in Patchwork and have varied the days and times in the week to give as many as possible a chance to participate.  See picture of cushions made in these sessions.  The Guild offered a chance for those with large supplies of fabric, notions and equipment to have a sales table in the Barn Hall and to sit and sew as well, we hope to this again next year.

Our next event is on Saturday September 24th 2016 at the Old Barn Hall Bookham when the next Surrey Regional Day will take place.  Doors open at 9.30 (until 3.30) and there are two speakers, Julia Gahagan who will guide us through a 30 minutes mini make! as well as showing her work.   Anja Townrow will feature 25 of her quilts in a talk entitled ‘private collection.  Traders, raffle and demonstrations also will be available.

A challenge is offered to those who attend in the shape of and A4 quilt with an original design featuring ‘Terry Wogan@- aspects of Life). Please bring entries on the day with your name on the reverse.  Prize for the winner will by visitors’ choice voting.

Please bring hand sewing kit and your own lunch. Cost is £16 for Guild members (non-members £20).
