Our guest speaker this year is Dale Rollerson. See Dale's blog HERE and her mail order business Thread Studio HERE. Dale is a textile artist living in Australia (originally from NZ). She is passionate about all areas of textile art and tries to be as cutting edge as she can.
Club challenges (open to financial members) for you to view this year are "2 Colour Challenge" and "Modern Quilts". Club challenges are to be handed in by 5pm Thursday 1st May 2014 to Village Books & Crafts or the Cloth Shop or Angels in Gumboots (all links and addresses above). Entry forms can also be collected from any of these shops.
If you are bringing quilts that you want to have hanging up on display, don't forget to add velcro to the top of your quilt - fluffy side - attached to the quilt itself or on a temporary sleeve.
