Our dynamic group has membership of over 80 women, who come from many walks of life; some with young children, mothers of school aged children, empty nesters and some older . They have been, or are working, in many areas including medical and health, education, public service, hospitality, technology, retail, legal, even school canteens, uniform shops and before and after school care.
The common thread that binds us is our love of the art of quilting, of textiles and textile arts. We meet over three days each week, Tuesday and Thursday mornings and Wednesday evenings. These are very informal sessions where we mostly work on our own projects (mostly quilts but sometimes other crafts such as embroidery or knitting), share ideas and advice, and chat and laugh together. There are a couple of convenors for each ‘day’ and they organise morning tea/supper roster, dinners and lunches, excursions and outings (even unrelated events such as bowling), visits to quilt shops, challenges or even a quilt for a momentous birthday. The three groups come together several times each year at different events such as Show and Tell, Christmas party, annual weekend retreat in the country, workshops and the biennial exhibition.
We are a dynamic and active group and support many causes and charities. Baby quilts are made for several maternity hospitals and we recently completed 3 quilt hangings to be used at Royal North Shore Hospital in waiting rooms to add interest and colour.
We have an extensive library, printer, sewing machine, floor standing quilt frame, light box, bias maker, fabric die cutting machine and other equipment for members use.
