There is a numbering error in the mystery quilt instructions in the June QQ.
The photos are incorrectly numbered . photo 1 is photo 3 and vice versa. and step 2 mentioned on page 14 should read step 1.’
Apologies for the error . Hopefully you are only now reaching this step and so this correction will make sense to you and you can now progress with your quilt!
To those travelling out to Sewing Night this evening, please take care in the Stirling Adriatic Club car park. There are works in progress for their new bowling green and the diggers have been in! Whilst the workmen and management are trying hard to minimise the risks and trip hazards, please be aware of where you are parking and walking!
We look forward to seeing you all tonight!
Mark your diaries for this special exhibition…
It is once again with great sadness that we know of yet another longtime WAQA member’s passing. Kris Skeffington lost her battle with cancer on June 10, 2017.
Although Kris was not a current member she is well known to the WAQA community and was a past president in 2003 to 2005. Kris initiated the ‘Loose Threads’ table at Sewing meetings. Kris’s friendly, fun and welcoming nature was my incentive to join WAQA.
We send Kris’s family and friends our deepest condolences
Last Wednesday saw WAQA’s version of speed dating at Stirling. Over 85 interested parties came along to see what we have on offer from beginners, contemporary and hand stitchery to artworks and Sweet Sixteen ‘give it a go’ opportunities. Our ‘next gen quilters’ group really showed their flair with the modern quilts and the even younger ‘young sew n sews’ were represented well with displays of their work.
Many joined WAQA for the first time and we look forward to seeing new, fresh faces at sewing day and night later in June. Thanks to all involved, it was a lovely reminder of all that we have on offer in this great Guild.
Two new workshops are coming up…
