To celebrate "National Stitch Day" three members of our Guild spent a couple of hours in the library at Royal Wootten Bassett - Susan Pierce, Brenda Evans and Ann Kingdon. There was some interest but unfortunately the ladies could not attend daytime meetings.
Many thanks to the Librarian, Carolyn, for letting us spend this time in the Library.
Thank you Ann for the report and photo. Ros
To celebrate the National Day of Stitch a group of Guild members visited Café Nero in Devizes and demonstrated a variety of techniques.
From the left - Robina Orchard, Margaret Heath, Christine Hill, Annie Fellowes (with her back to the camera) and Celia Bell.
Thank you Christine for the photo and details.
There were a number of different categories in the exhibition and here are the winners of the pictorial and contemporary sections.
As well there were traditional quilts on display, "My first Quilts", art quilts, miniature quilts, group quilts, quilts from abroad and those created by young quilters. The winner of a City & Guilds award was Charlotte Haenlein and her quilt was based on Nepalese hats. Below you will find a selection from these categories which you can scroll through.
Unfortunately I have had to delete these amazing quilts because I did not have permission to reproduce them on our blog. August 2019
