Birthday Meeting

This month our speaker was a club member who showed us how to make more of our tension swatches and samples. By adding some iron-on interfacing to the back of the samples they were ready to cut and sew and attach to other materials to make cushion covers, bags, or used as applique in regular sewing projects or stitched together in a multitide of ways to create fantastic new fabrics and textures.

April meeting was our 35th birthday. Shirley made a tasty cake and some sausage rolls to go with our teas and coffees.

There was some interesting items in the show and tell.
