sara impey visits alveva quilters

one of sara's iconic pieces of work

sara talking to liz nally after the talk
we were very lucky to have sara impey speaking to the group at our march meeting. everyone was enthralled by the story of her working practice and, indeed, by the amazing examples that she brought along to show us. I just love the piece at the top with all the hanging threads-wish I had thought of that!

Quilters Guild Regional Weekend in Frodsham (and a visit to Chester)

 I had a really good weekend with the 'girls' from Quilters Guild Region 13 at Frodsham in Cheshire, two workshop days and the regional day on Saturday. it was great to see so many familiar faces and meet many new friends. here are some of the girls at the marvellous marble workshop-work in progress- I look forward to seeing the finished pieces! I also had time to make a lightening trip into Chester, the cathedral has loads of little gems including this iconic sculpture in the garden and some amazing stained glass.
