JUNE 2017

Welcome to the June meeting of Thameside Quilters.

Sadly Jacquie Cranfield will not be able to attend tonight’s meeting so on her behalf the committee have stepped in. We will be making the blocks for the Project Linus “Eye Spy” log cabin quilt. These are 5” square centre of pictorial fabric and jelly roll strips to make the borders.  Sue will be manning the sales table so please have a rummage as all the proceeds will be going to Project Linus.

Last month we launched the group 2017 Mystery Block Challenge. You should now have received your first block either “House and Garden” or “Tea on the Lawn”. If you have any problems or wish to join please email Judy or Alison.

There are still places available for the July workshop – Angela Daymond – Hare or Chicken Kantha Clock – please see Alex to sign up

Kantha stitching is a running stitch but it is in the placement of colours that make these amazing. If you can sew you can do this.

Please note the change to the 2017 programme.
