Modern Mix SA Quilters

Events and Activities


MODERN MIX SA QUILTERS
The Modern Mix SA Quilters is a gathering of quilters who are interested in finding out more about modern quilting. The group has been formed to provide opportunities for exploring and learning new techniques. Members share ideas, information and their love of textiles. The sessions are a combination of members working on their own projects and trying out new techniques. Each month a challenge is offered up for those keen to be invovled in that aspect of the Group.

Modern Mix has a dedicated Facebook page for participants who want to share their monthly challenges, tips, ideas and everything 'Modern'. Go to Facebook Modern Mix and join the Group.

EVERYONE WELCOME
