Today’s Cutting Edge meeting was as busy as ever with members busy working on current projects and eager to show work that they had recently completed.
And we were pleased to welcome three visitors to the group today – Alison, Kerry and Janet. It is lovely to greet new people and see some of the lovely work that they are producing.
Work for the groups exhibition in Tapestri cafe is coming on well.
Monica is embellishing a wall hanging made from panels that are entitled She sews Sea Shells – it seems very apt for our sea themed exhibition
Fiona showed some pieces of work that she will be entering. The porthole is so inventive – made with painted vilene and painted bondaweb! And she created the beautiful fish wall hanging at a Hilary Beattie workshop.
Having now exhausted the sea she has moved onto a textured landscape inspired by Wendy Dolan – fabulous!
Sally is busy working on a piece for the exhibition which also features portholes….
Following our recent workshop we have a wonderful collection of fabric postcards – around 40 – so today we laid out the background fabric to decide how best to show them
Visitor Kerry showed a beautiful quilt that she has recently completed – an excellent finish on both sides!
Truda showed a quilt that she has made from scraps – and pointed out that her scrap bucket looks no different now to when she started!
Jan was busy basting a quilt together which she hopes to have finished for the Swansea Festival of Stitch Quilt Expo
Jan and Sally were also busy deconstructing pieces of work at one point!
Amanda has finished her fabric journal – and there was a request to have another workshop. But we decided that in September anyone who is interested can join a group at monthly meetings to make them. This way people can work at their own pace and share stash and ideas
And finally, Lesley Anne showed the group a lovely little cushion that she has made
And in addition to all of the above we had a stash of fabric, haberdashery and books for members to wade through. We are thrilled to report that we raied £120 for Sands (stillbirth and neonatal death) charity!
Rather an industrious and very enjoyable day. Thanks to everyone for their enthusiasm and support of our various activities – which is always very much appreciated!
