September Show and Tell

We had 25 members attend our September sew day all properly socially distanced of course. Thankfully, community transmission is almost zero again here in Brisbane and the case numbers are coming down in New South Wales and Victoria.

There was lots of lovely show and tell this month, including a couple of finishes from our most recent Jenny Haynes workshop.

We hope you enjoy the photos. Stay safe and healthy everyone, and don’t forget to wash your hands.

August Sew Day and Swap Handover

As we mentioned in our last post, we are finally back meeting face to face after three months of lockdown . . . and we were finally able to gift our swap items to our swap partners

Our members are an amazing group of makers. We had the most amazing mini quilts, pouches and bags gifted as part of our 2020 Guild Swap and the handover was, as usual, a lot of fun.

We have another online class with Jenny Haynes via zoom coming up. Check out our socials for information on the class, as always visitors and guests are always welcome to join us.

March 2015 – Stitches and Craft Show

Brisbane MQG stand - 2015 Stitches and Craft Fair The BrisbaneMQG was out in force at the Stitches and Craft Show held in Brisbane on 19 – 22 of March.

With quilts on display from several of our members, we had an incredibly positive response form the showgoers. A crowd favourite was definitely the Fox by Kim D, which had people coming from the other end of the hall to see up close. June S’s Tula Pink Sampler was also a winner with Guild members being told off because the pattern had sold out at the Show. The range of techniques in these quilts meant that we spent lots of time walking around with people and discussing hand dying, wonky piecing, nested churn dashes and flying geese.  But we did have time to sit and do some hand sewing (or unsewing in some cases).

We are looking forward to next year’s show already!
