Beginners are blooming

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).
