We hosted our third meeting in Beuna Vista Park on July 26th and this was a great reminder that there are upsides to Covid-19 too. This location is incredibly lovely and we are going to miss it so much when the cold hits. Bringing lawn chairs to a lush green park sure is a nice break from all of those on-line meetings. We will continue in the park in August. Soon we hope to move inside for a socially distanced sew day. Be sure to check the website for updates on meeting locations.
The photo captures some of the projects. Attendees shared some great techniques such as: using a fabric key for colours, dye catchers for washing quilts, hand stitching, hand look machine quilting, and how to make a mini mosaic.
There are still some workshops and lecture spaces available for the virtual QuiltCon 2021. Check out the website to register at: https://www.quiltcon.com/.
We hosted our second meeting in Beuna Vista Park on June 28th and it was absolutely lovely. We will continue in the park in July and August because the location really can’t be beat. Dyanne led the educational portion of the meeting with a talk on art quilting. She always says she isn’t a quilter but her work says otherwise. It is absolutely gorgeous! She is so artistic and talented and it was a true treat to hear the inspiration behind her pieces. This photo captures a glimpse of the setting and Dyanne (left) and our Chair Charlene (right).
We are planning to be informal on July 26th. We are hoping that those that come will share a technique. So if you are available, start thinking of something you can share for the educational part of the meeting. Don’t stress about it because any tips are great. Even in going back to the basics, that could spark an interesting conversation for all. We hope everyone is enjoying their summer, even if it is a little bit different than what may have been planned.
