March 25, 2019 | Posted in Drop-in, Japanese | By

The next meeting of the Small Japanese Projects group is on 27 March, from 10am-noon, in the CQ room at Cook Community Hub.

The Small Japanese Projects interest group is for members interested in all things Japanese. Each month (or over two months) you will work on a small project, lead by a member of the group.

The meeting begins with a show and tell of what you have made, purchased or done during the previous months. It is always great to hear about your activities.

The project for this month is finishing of the Boro Sewing Caddy started last month, presented by Nat Palaskas.

Requirement List

  • Foundation fabric – cut 1 piece, 13”x6” and 1 piece, 23”x7” (plain soft fabric for easy BORO stitching).
  • Gather lots of fabric scraps for BORO pieces.
  • Lining fabric same size as the foundation pieces above.
  • Thread for BORO stitching. Pearle cotton #8 is perfect, but whatever you have on hand is fine.
  • Wadding, same size as foundation pieces above.
  • Contrasting fabric for tie, 1.5 “x 30”.
  • Please cut the 2 foundation pieces (see above measurements) and bring them with you. Bring your sewing kit containing thread for basting, sewing needle, pins and cutting scissors.
  • Nat will be doing a demo at the meeting.

The meeting is followed by a drop-in until 4pm. The English Paper Piecing (EPP) group meets as part of the drop-in.

Donations will be accepted of unwrapped toys toiletries. These will be donated to shelters. There will also be an opportunity to make a financial donation.

Don’t forget to bring something for regular show & tell.

For new members, Wonderful Wednesday is held on the third Wednesday of each month except December, normally in the Hub Hall from 9.30am till 12.30pm. It is a good opportunity to do some handwork and meet for a chat. We have Raffles, Lucky Door Prize, and Name Badge Draw, some of the most wonderful morning tea fare and a themed Show and Tell plus the regular Show and Tell.

If you are a newcomer or you haven’t been for a while PLEASE come and sit at Christine’s table (WW convener) where ever that may be, until you get better acquainted with the other members.
