Canberra Quilters has started a Beginners Interest Group to help those new to patchwork to develop their skills. It is aimed at quilters who have done a beginners course and want to move on to something else. The first meeting was on the 3rd Wednesday evening in November, and the third Wednesday evening will be the regular time slot. For December it will be on 14 December, starting at 7.30pm.
This time the demonstration & try out will be about English Paper Piecing (EPP), lead by Patricia Butron and Anne Eccleston. Patricia will provide the pre-cut papers. Participants need to bring fabric scraps (at least 4″/ 10cm square), pencil, pins, scissors, needle and thread. QFO have donated some of their excess fabric to help the beginners achieve some fabric variety.
Elizabeth Scroope will be demonstrating binding a quilt, using a QFO quilt. This is a demonstration only.
