Members attending last month's General Meeting at Burwood RSL were 'entertained' by the gifted and vibrant Guest speaker, Fiona Hammond.
A colourful and visually inspiring slideshow of Fiona's textural and textile journey was accompanied by a hands on display of amazingly beaded and embellished jewellery, quilts, bowls and 3D fabric whimsy.
Kate Quilts hadn't any difficulty enticing many to purchase her lovely fabric packs and patterns,
and, the "Demonstration" at the commencement of the day, was a timely and extremely worthwhile, instructional presentation by Deborah Laurie, guiding members through the new procedure of submitting their Sydney Quilt Show Entry online.
The afternoon is always made even more colourful with "Show and Tell" and the first General Meeting 'back', in a New Year, consistantly produces a lovely array of quilts completed during the summer break.
The next General Meeting of The Quilters' Guild of NSW Inc. will be the Country Meeting on Saturday 21st March, in Tuncurrry, where textile artist and quilter Jan Irvine-Nealie will be the Guest Speaker.
