Dyeing to Paint Again!

A whole month has gone by in a flash and time to paint again today – what fun!

It was great to see a few of the group taking up the challenge to paint their new aprons – and there were some stunning results as you can see here…

Alongside the apron embellishment Keris was busy getting on with Christmas

Liz was busy working on some fabric that she had dyed last month and she was also having a go with the stencils

Jan was getting her head round a little screen kit she had bought at a recent quilt show

Sally was trying out some stamps that she had made….

Rosie, along with a few others, was on a card making mission

And Fiona was experimenting with Inktense blocks

Amidst the frenzy of activity there were a few took a break to view the St Hilary telephone box which has been decorated to commemorate the end of the First World War and it features felt poppies that were amde by CE memebrs for the WW1 quilt project!

As always, a great day with lots of creativity and good humour. Looking forward to next month already!


Dates for your Diary


On Thursday 4 July, between 10.00am and 4.00pm, you are invited to join us for a fabric painting day in St Hilary Village Hall, Cowbridge CF71 7DP.

You are welcome to come along with your fabric dyes, crayons, stencils, thermofax screens etc. to experiment, or, if you have a piece of work in mind that you want to get started on then this is your opportunity!


On Saturday 12 October, between 10.00am and 4.00pm, you are invited to join us for a UFO (unfinished object) day in Ystradowen Village Hall, Vale of Glamorgan. The only criteria is that you bring a piece of work along that you have been meaning to finish for sometime but just haven’t got around to it. And, of course, show it off at the end of the day!

The cost to attend either day is £5.00, which will cover the room hire, tea, coffee and biscuits. You will, however, need to bring your lunch with you.

If you would like to book a place email mdennis.wales@gmail.com

Diamond Jubilee Celebrations

Some members of the group have been busy supporting the Jubilee celebrations. Hilary made a staggering 50 metres of bunting, decorated with Welsh flags and union jacks, which has been well used throughout the celebrations. Lakeside Primary School in Cardiff were the first to make use of it to brighten up their celebrations. It then made its way to the St Hilary village celebrations, and finally joined the jubilee tea party which was held in the Duke of Wellington, Cowbridge.  Well done Hilary, you are a star.

On Tuesday 5 June some members of Cutting Edge supported the Cowbridge celebrations by having a stall in the Holy Cross Church to show cases some of the crafts that are produced by the group.
