Material Obsession : that "go-to" shop for all quilting visitors to Sydney, will be the Guild's Feature Shop at this weekend's General Meeting.
This Aladdin's Cave of gorgeous fabrics, quilting essentials and original patterns which inspire new direction and bubbling creativity, has the indomitable Kathy Doughty at the helm. Whilst Kathy may not be joining her enthusiastic team at the Guild Meeting due to International teaching commitments, be assured that their display will be full of "must-have" items.
Some of these will be the perspex Templates that Catherine Butterworth uses for a number of her quilt designs. Catherine is one of the teachers that Material Obsession employs for their ongoing workshops and, as noted on the previous post for Template Free, Catherine will be doing the Demonstration at the Guild Meeting this Saturday at 11 am.

Catherine Butterworth, maestro at visioning and provoking commercial fabric colours and patterns into motifs that dance with aplomb across her quilts, would be be less successful if her piecing skills were also not at master level.
This month the Quilters' Guild of NSW Inc. is delighted to have Catherine demonstrate her machine piecing tricks at the May meeting, and invites members to see how Catherine navigates points, intersections and seams with perfection, using her domestic machine.
New Constitution for the Guild.
Guest Speaker : Jenny Bacon
Venue - "The Dome"

This is the final call for members wishing to learn Pam's technique of producing vibrant small quilt motifs, using very few drafting tools.
Applique and quilting are all done in one simple step with the sewing machine, and even the dog-tooth border is simple to achieve!
Please phone the Guild Office immediately if you would like to be part of this creative day. A workshop application form can be completed over the phone.
