Friday Showcase - Friday April 6

Glenda Wise is the guest presenter for our April Friday Showcase.

Glenda began quilting in 1994.  Already an accomplished dressmaker and maker of soft toys, a series of beginner classes in he mid 90s changed Glenda’s focus to patchwork and quilting and Glenda, in her own words, was “hit by the bug!”

Glenda is a very active member of Illawarra Quilters, having held a multitude of committee positions and devoting much of her time to organising and sewing charity quilts. Her keen interest in entering annual challenges has led to her gathering a treasure trove of special quilts.

A love of learning new techniques and attendance at many classes have allowed Glenda to branch out into many styles of quilting and the quilts she will share with us will demonstrate her skills in both hand and machine piecing, appliqué and quilting.

Friday Showcase is held on the first Friday of most months at our QuiltNSW office, 276 Pitt Street, Sydney, close to Town Hall Station.  Glenda’s presentation this Friday, April 6th, starts at 10am, with an entrance fee of $5 for members and $10 for guests.
