A fun sponsored Quiltathon making Linus Quilts

We had great fun on Saturday, making quilts for Linus (for children in special need) and at the same time being sponsored to support a group of women in India to learn to sew so that they can support their families. We were enjoying ourselves sewing but the Indian women will sew to feed and educate their families. We’re lucky to have the freedom to sew for enjoyment. And local children will find comfort in the snuggly quilts we made. Everyone wins!


Nice Bookshelves!

Nice Bookshelves!

A great talk by Bobby Britnell on Wednesday evening. Bobby is a quilter/embroiderer/textile artist and she brought a huge range of her pieces of art to show us. There were lots that I loved but I particularly liked these bookshelves.
