One of the activities available for members at the Sewing Meetings are Pop-Ups. A pop-up is a short 10-20 minute demonstration by a WAQA member of a technique, product or item to make. Sometimes instructions are provided so members can try out the technique or make the item.
At the May meetings, Gwen did a demonstration on how to make a book cover. There was a lot of interest from the members attending and so it was just wonderful at the June Sewing Day to see the six completed book covers that Helen Smith made.
At the April meetings, Phil did a demonstration on easy sew squares. Everyone attending was amazed at the accuracy that could be achieved in sewing squares together. Chris Walsh tried out this technique for the quilt top she brought to the Beginners Group (I just loved it, especially the colour)
The pop-up at the June meeting was presented by Gwen Parry and she demonstrated how to make a Breast Pillow. The pattern for the pillow is included here and I’m looking forward to seeing how many pillows turn up next month.
