Guild General Meeting : 28 February 2015

The first meeting this year for The Quilters' Guild of NSW Inc will be held next Saturday in 'The Function Room' (First Level)  at Burwood RSL.

Purple and Aqua Mosaic 8 Inch Block of The Quarter. 
 Just some of the blocks that will be "won" during the BOQ Draw.

Our Guest Speaker will be the exuberant and creative Mixed Media Artist,  Fiona Hammond.
No stranger to awards for her creative textile pieces, Fiona is sure to interest all members with her talk "Fabric = Fun - my inspirations and passions with quilting and textile arts"

Knowing that Fiona has a lust for vibrant colour and texture, be assured that her presentation will be a visual delight, and is sure to encourage us all to think beyond a traditional approach to our own creativity.

The "Guest Shop" being showcased at the February Meeting will be "Kate Quilts" : Contemporary / retro fabrics for modern quilters.
Demonstration Update : The Accuquilt Cutter  Demonstration has been postponed.

The 'Demonstration' will cover “How to submit online, a Sydney Quilt Show Entry”. 
The online facility is a new strategy for the Guild and has been introduced to meet member requests. 
The Guild would like to encourage as many exhibitors as possible to switch to online entry. 
Deborah Laurie will be explaining all details to attendees.

Deborah will also answer any questions that members have regarding their quilt show entries and any copyright related issues. Should there be a concern regarding the design of your quilt show entry, then please bring along the quilt, photo and/or the inspiration/design source and Deborah will be happy to discuss this with you.

Thanks to Brenda Gael Smith for her preparatory work on this presentation.  

Reminder : As was announced at the November General Meeting  :
