The WAQA beginners’ group has grown over time and we’ve just moved out of the studio and into the main hall at Alexander Park Craft House, so it seems like a good time to post some photographs showing the busy beginners at work…
The skill levels vary (some have been coming to the group for a number of years and some are completely new), so that throws up a few challenges. This year the attendees have three choices –
- To get the basic skills while working on a ‘Strip Tease’ quilt – each strip uses a different technique. Good for complete beginners
- To make a number of blocks and units using more advanced techniques to make an improvisational style quilt
- To work on their own project with some assistance if required.
Of course this is very fluid, with a lot of overlapping, but as the photos show everyone just gets stuck into whatever they want to do.
It’s a great group!
Meetings at Alexander Park Craft House, Clyde Rd, Menora on the first and third Monday of each month, 12pm to 3pm (except public holidays).
