Here is a (not too good) picture of the silk coverlet made in 1718. It was shown under glass.
. . . is the title of Kathleen Laurel Sage‘s talk on Thursday September 6th. Kathleen is a freelance designer and embroiderer using a variety of traditional and modern techniques to produce contemporary designs using a variety of media.
The members certainly had a good night on 5th July when Anja gave such an entertaining talk about the quilts in her private collection. There were lots of laughs and such beautiful quilts to drool over. Anja obviously likes compasses and vases!!
Can’t wait to arrange a Workshop with Anja.
Anne Walsh was the only member for the ‘Show and Tell’.
Lovely table runner.
Here, also, are some photos of Anja’s own quilts.
The quilts in background are all Anja’s.
We do not meet in August, our next meeting will be 6th September when Kathleen Laurel Sage will give a talk entitled ‘Extrav-organza’.
In the meantime The Festival of Quilts is at the NEC from the 9th – 12th August.
Anja Townrow is our speaker this Thursday. If you haven’t heard Anja talk before you are in for a treat.
Also, remember, first come basis for the free gift from John James Needles!
I received a box with 50 packets from John James Needles. In each pack there is a pack of needles and several sheets of paper giving details of the needles.
They will be given out on a ‘first come’ basis at the next meeting in July.
A lovely little free gift from them.
John James needles have said they will send us packs of needles as they had to cancel their talk to us.
I will post as soon as I receive them, and, hopefully give them out at next meeting.
