7th November

The Arts and Crafts group met on 7 November 2019 and embarked on a project to produce a patchwork quilt.

The squares, having been cut out in advance by Sharon, were arranged in a manner that satisfied all present and then numbered, ready for assembly and sewing. This will be a work in progress for some time as there is much to do. Once the squares are sewn together they will be attached to a backing sheet sandwiching the wadding and then quilted to hold the wadding in place and enhance the overall appearance.

The next meeting will be at 2 Marlborough Road at 10.30am on 5 December.

Anyone interested in joining the group or observing the work in progress will be very welcome.
