Last weekend Canberra Quilters ran another successful Sew-In. Members booked a table and came along for a concentrated period of sewing – whether it was quilting, piecing, tracing designs or using the pinning table. Those participating all progressed their projects. Participants leave their equipment in place overnight and come back the next morning.

Some more are being planned for May (fully subscribed), July (just before the exhibition), September, October and November.  The later ones still have spots open. The October Sew-In immediately precedes Desperation Week (27-31 October). Desperation, Week is set up to let those doing the UFO pledge or ROWmakers to have a concentrated period of sewing before the final reveals at the end of the year.

If you want to participate email me at blog@canberraquilters.org.au
