Long time no blogging! We can confidently say we have been way too busy sewing to get behind our keyboards. So much has happened!
First order of business: we have a Sit & Sew on Saturday 20th April – please send us an email if you’d like to be added to our list. Places are limited so email quick! 🙂 You can find info about our Sit & Sews here.
Last month we had a great turnout and lots of new faces – welcome Robyn, Louise, and Bronny! We love seeing new sewists and it was great to have some of the girls from the Eastwood Patchwork Quilters there too. They are putting on a beautiful exhibition from 3rd-5th May this year, well worth stopping in. The raffle quilts are gorgeous. You can read more about it here. 🙂
We had a conversation about the Modern Quilt Guild’s change to their definition of modern quilting. The consensus is that it is quite a personal thing. (If you think you’re a modern quilter, you are!) The new definition is quite inclusive and simply gives a bit of framework for explaining the evolving aesthetic. It was interesting to see what we defined as modern and what we thought of as “traditional” quilting, too.
We did have some show and tell from last month!
