Hanging at Winchester House

I recently popped into Winchester House, the Cancer Society rooms,  to see what was on show this month.  And it was a very colourful, happy looking  heart quilt in shades of red, teal blue and touches of yellow.  Susan Riley made her lovely bright quilt attending  a class to learn the  “quilt as you go” technique.  And it certainly adds a lovely splash of colour to Winchester House.

Challenge Quilt Awards on Wednesday

At club night on Wednesday 11th November, the awards will be made for the challenge entries.  Shirley Mooney has judged the Advanced Class – do come along and check out our clever members work.

Shirley will also be our guest speaker, so it promises to be a great evening.

See you on Wednesday evening.
