New members are always welcome, to be put in touch with a convenor use the Contact Us tab above.
My mother in law visited from the UK 3 years ago and was here for the EPQ quilt show and attended a few meetings on Wednesdays with me. The girls from Wednesday were lovely enough to give Barbara some blocks as a present for her help at the show and as a farewell gift. She has now created two quilts from these blocks and sent me some photos. I thought everyone might enjoy seeing them. Chris C.
A Taste of Patchwork
For the first time this year, Eastwood patchwork Quilters will be holding a series of workshops titled A Taste of Patchwork.
The workshops will be held daily, at 2pm, at our exhibition and all are welcome to join. Of course, numbers are limited so if you are interested, speak to one of the EPQ members upon arrival.
There is no cost for the workshops, and all materials and tuition will be provided by EPQ members. A simple patchwork block will be completed using hand stitching techniques.
In addition to the Taste of Patchwork workshops at the exhibition, Eastwood Patchwork Quilters will be holding Beginner Workshops at their meeting hall later in May if sufficient interest is expressed by the public at the exhibition.
So don’t miss out, make sure you take up this brand new opportunity at the Eastwood Patchwork Quilters Exhibition on May 3, 4 and 5.
