March Guild Meeting - The second demonstration night was another success. So you want to exhibit a quilt? There were samples of waddings, stiffeners, demo's of good binding technique, how to do a sleeve, pinning your quilt effectively, spray basting, talks about appraising, judging and the journey of the quilt once it is entered in the exhibition. Show & tell - quilts made with precuts & one-block wonders was really interesting too with people inspired to take that 'ugly' fabric & transform!
Here is Jill with her trusty can of spray.

Appraisal Panel has vacancies - if interested please send an expression of interest form to Heather Ford. No experience necessary. 6 meetings a year.

February Guild Meeting - Suzanne Gummow - spoke about the value and joy of teaching & lecturing over her lifetime. Tell; Show; Do; Review being a consistent method & hoping to inspire & ignite a spark in a student. Visuals of work across the various forms of teaching were very interesting. Suzannes personal work covers two themes, flowers & her travels in Asia. Thanks Suzanne for sharing with us.
