“Arrival of the Rajah Quilt” in progress

We held our first Sit and Sew meeting for the year today with a great turnout and several new members welcomed.

On Display this month were the works of our talented Patchwork group. They impressed us with everything from a Teddy Bear, Crazy Quilting, Dresden Plates and Double Wedding Rings. There was even a teeny weeny Suffolk Puff quilt made for a dolls house.

Our guest speaker Eva Abbinga described the Rajah Quilt made by convict women on their voyage to Australia. She outlined the quilting project that she is running at the National Wool Museum this month   Click for more details of the Rajah Quilt
