July Allcomers Day

It was great to see so many club members on Saturday at the Allcomers Day.  Our current meeting place at the Vintage Car Club rooms is warm and cozy with plenty of tables available.  We had twelve members in the morning, with an extra one or two who popped in the afternoon, making it a good sized number of attendees.

Lynne had brought along instructions for a table runner, and several of the ladies decided to slice and sew their strips, cut them into squares and triangles, and then reassemble them.  The narrow “zinger” strips were the secret and made all the difference to this design.  Jane was sitting beside me, and thought it was such a great design, that she declared she would go home and stitch another one!

Susan was getting to the finish line with the Bookcase quilt she was making for her daughter’s 21st Birthday.  Last time I saw it, it was still in pieces, and now the blocks had been “quilted as you go”, assembled, and the borders were being added.

Several were making flowers and leaves as homework for the recent Hydrangea class run by Adrienne Walker.  I was amazed at the amount of stitching which went into making these organza leaves.

Janneka had brought along a pretty floral quilt she was making which will be donated to the Pink Ladies Breast Cancer Support Group.  This is sure to be most appreciated by someone who is dealing with this health challenge.

There were some lovely new fabrics to admire.  Ute had brought along a new shipment of pretty imported fabrics in lovely Spring colours.  Contact her on https://www.thelifestyler.nz/ for more information.

It was a lovely day, in nice surroundings, shared  with good company.  Many thanks to Lynne and the Committee for running these Allcomers Days for the club members.
