Wendy, who taught two workshops in December of her own design of Christmas runner, will return on Thursday 10 February to teach her new Fireflies design. This makes a lovely cushion cover, or can be extended to a table runner, or even to a quilt. There are just three spaces remaining on this workshop now.
You will find the full list of workshops at the bottom of this newsletter. If there is something that you would like to learn but is not listed, please let me know.
Staffordshire Patchwork and Quilters
Meetings of the SPQ are held on the first Thursday of most months from 6.45pm. There is no SPQ meeting in January.
The next meeting will be on Thursday 3 February, when we will back at The Walton Community Centre, Whitemill Lane, Stone, ST15 0QE; we’ll have a talk entitled ‘Quilt as Desired’ by Abigail Sheridan De Graff, an award-winning long arm quilter.
There is no membership fee, just an admission charge of £4 per meeting. Bring some change to buy a raffle ticket or two, and mug - tea and coffee will be provided.
We are still taking care to make our workroom as safe as possible: the workstations are facing the wall, and we sanitise surfaces and equipment between workshops. Please do not come into the shop or attend a workshop if you are feeling unwell.
Sit and Sew sessions on Wednesdays and Fridays cost just £6 a session and pre-booking is essential to guarantee a place. Sessions run from 10am - 1pm, 2pm - 5pm (and on Wednesday only, 5.30 - 8.30pm.)The price includes use of sewing machine and all equipment, and unlimited tea and coffee.
