New Quilter

This is Helen.  She is proudly holding her finished quilt.  She is a new comer to the world of quilting.  This quilt will eventually be donated to the community.  It was made from material donated to the guild.  Well done Helen and well done to the ladies who assisted her in this task.

Quilt Handover

Once a month some of the ladies in our Guild meet to make quilts and items for our community.  We recently donated 20 quilts and 24 pillow cases to the Child Protection Counselling Service of the Local Central Coast Health District.  These beautiful quilts will be given to parents, grandparents, children and carers who have experienced trauma or violence.  We hope they will make someones day a little brighter.

Felting Workshop

What a wonderful day we all had at the cottage today. There was six of us attending the Nuno Felting workshop with the very talented Carolyn Kohler. Everyone went home very happy with their wrap and they were all so different but all looked just amazing. I asked the ladies to share their thoughts on the workshop and here is what they had to say …
* Marvellous workshop with a patient and talented tutor.
* I am so thrilled with the skills I have learnt today and so proud of my piece.
*Thank you so much Carolyn for a wonderful day, your calmness and encouragement was invaluable.
*I am thrilled with my Shawl and am In awe of the wonderful creations you guided us all to produce. This was an unforgettable day and the start of a whole new fibre adventure for me.
Carolyn has promised to come back next year to do another workshop for those who were interested but unable to attend today.

Social Function

Being a member of our guild provides not only an avenue to pursue your favourite crafts, it also provides an opportunity to engage in very pleasant social outings among friends.  Thank you to our Social convener Ruth and to Beth for making her home available. The pot luck lunch was very tasty.
