JULY 2017

Good Evening, Members,

Welcome to the July meeting of Thameside Quilters.

Tonight we welcome Angela Daymond who will be giving a talk on her love of dyeing with woad and Natural products. Angela is the owner of Fenland Studios and specialises in Kantha Stitching. This is a type of embroidery typical of eastern South Asia.  Kantha stitching is a running stitch but it is in the placement of colours that make this amazing. If you can sew you can do this. Angela also specialises in dyeing from Natural elements. There is also a workshop tomorrow (Sat) on Kantha Stitching, so please ensure you have signed up for the workshop.

Due to illness the September talk and workshop with Kate Percival has been cancelled. Refunds will be issued tonight so please see Sue for your refund. Our thoughts are with Kate and hope she recovers well.

Please note the change to the 2017 programme.

 18 August – Speaker Alison Garner – Fidget Quilts

This meeting will be held at the Greeno Day Centre, Glebeland Gardens, Shepperton, TW17 9DH, which is a proposed venue for 2018 meetings. This is a trial visit to see how well we like it.

Have a great evening
