The next Burwood General Meeting promises a day of much shared information, colour, and fun.
The Demonstration will be conducted by Deb Louie, a recent Guild Scholarship Holder.
Attendees who wish to "Shop" will be enticed by the beautiful fabrics and notions available from the owner of Appleyard Cottage - Veronica Appleyard. She has suggested that Members might like to visit her website prior to the meeting. Should there be any product in particular that members may wish her to bring to the meeting, then please don't hesitate to contact her, and she will endeavour to have them at the Burwood meeting.
The Guest Speaker will be respected Textile Artist and teacher Diane Groenewegan
Her Powerpoint Presentation and display of textile works is entitled " Living in Two Worlds - a Fabric Collage". Di's inspiration to create comes from the beautiful fabrics, papers and intriguing items that pepper her eclectic collection. Her resources are unique and treasured, and she uses them to weave a visual story to delight her viewers.
Following on from Di will be a Special presentation by Trish Bloomfield.
Instead of our usual "Show and Tell" Trish will be sharing the stories behind 7 of her valued antique Red and White Quilts which will be on display.
Afternoon Tea, BOQ and Lucky Door draw will occur after Trish has spoken to the Guild.
