It is always a pleasure to be in the vicinity of Perth and be able to attend Sewing night at the Stirling Adriatic Centre. I never cease to be amazed by what is on offer. I witnessed lots of people signing up for their Shop hop passports, people being enticed by the fabric on offer from our Community quilters who were holding a sale, loving the fabric that was on sale from Two Crafty ladies and then very much enjoying a wonderful show and tell and wandering around the room and saying hello to all the quilters and seeing what wonderful work they were producing.
It was also a great opportunity to say hello to Thea, who does such a wonderful job of coordinating the WAQA library. Did you know that even if you live regionally, Thea is able to send you many books and magazines ? Why not avail yourself of this wonderful benefit of being a WAQA regional member? and if you do live in the metropolitan area and attend sewing days and nights, then please do go and say hello to Thea and check out the wonderful selection of books and magazines that you can borrow.
In my 15 years, of living regionally, I have thoroughly enjoyed the selection of books and magazines that have been sent to me, so well done all our WAQA country librarians. You can read more about this here:- https://waquilters.com/becoming-a-member/library/
I also do apologise, as so caught up in the moment, of show and tell , I am unable to share the names of the people who made the quilts. As always, if your quilt is featured here and you wish to be recognised as the maker, then please let me know ,as always happy to share further details. The candlewick quilt was spectacular , there were some community bandanna quilts on show and our raffle quilt was also on show. The raffle quilt is currently on display at Handcrafters House in Midland and will be moved around different venues in the lead up to Quiltwest 2019. So as Molly Meldrum says, “do yourself a favour” and do go and check out this quilt and grab some raffle tickets, it is a truly beautiful quilt.
There are many exciting things happening this year, so be sure to stay tuned to all our social media updates.
The wonderful Thea, our WAQA librarian and a selection of books that our members can borrow.
A Wagga quilt in the making, some beautiful crocheted squares and and a gorgeous embroidery, I am feeling very inspired.
Remember we have the very talented Jemima Flendt from Tied with a Ribbon at our general meeting on Feb 6th. We have Shop Hop happening in March over two weekends to include both our metro and regional shops , and many more wonderful things in 2019, so stay tuned in.
