Happy New Year everyone!
Our January meeting will take place this Saturday 8th January.
"Rags for Linda" will provide the shop selling a great selection of fabrics and Linda has announced a 10% discount sale!
We will not have a guest speaker, choosing instead to ask a number of members to demonstrate their favourite techniques to create work that might suit our upcoming exhibition theme 'Branching Out'.
Marilyn will demonstrate hand appliqued flowers, leaves, etc.
Ester will demonstrate free-machine embroidery on soluble fabric to make delicate leaves.
Vera will paint flowers on fabrics, using mono printing and dyeing techniques.
We also hope to show Gyongi Varadi's technique of creating leaves, flowers, trees using piecing over papers.
Colette will have the library available as usual. A number of older titles in the library will be offered for sale to members so that we can make room on our shelves for some newer titles. We have added a new page to our website with the list of all titles in our library for you to review at any time (see the top of the blog). Also if you have suggestions of new titles you would like the library to purchase, let Colette know and she will bring your suggestions to the committee.
