May 2015 Friday Showcase Report

As expected, there were no spare chairs to be had when 36 members of The Quilters' Guild of NSW Inc gathered to view the quilts that recent Friday Showcase Presenter, Wendy Williams, shared.

Her creations were wonderfully whimsical and colourful, and made with a meticulous attention to detail.
Please visit the Guild Office to see some of Wendy's work displayed on the walls and thus appreciate her fine applique and fabulous embroidery embellishment. A more detailed account of Wendy's presentation will be published in a future edition of The Template.

There will not be another Friday Showcase until July, so there is plenty of time to visit the office.
