April Guild Meeting - Tracey Browning, Guild member & owner of Constantine Quilts & The Australian Machine Quilting Festival shared with us her quilting journey (from age 13). We saw some early quilts, award winning quilts by Tracey & her sister Helen Stubbings and heard all the info about AMQF this September. Take a look at the AMQF page to take advantage of this fabulous festival right here in SA.
A Show & Tell highlight was two hand quilted wholecloth quilts by Bronnie from 1985 & 1988. Thanks to everyone else who shared & our lucky visitor winning the President's encouragement award. Next month we will have an efficient AGM to allow time for demonstration night : ' Doing it with Paper' - Lesley gave us an overview & the program sounds fantastic. Come early there will be lots to see.
