Guest speaker – fabric dyeing

Our next meeting is this Thursday – 7.30pm civic library.

We’re having a guest speaker this time – Judy – who has been dyeing fabric for years and is coming along to give us an introduction.

She is also destashing and bringing along boxes of fabric to give away. I’m not sure how much – but she’s asked for help getting up the stairs…!

And there are two more big ticket items on Thursday.

  1. We’ll be signing up for the next Modern Quilt Guild challenge – for Michael Miller fabric. It’s another of the Guild’s fabric give aways. There are 12 on the list already, let us know asap if you want to be part of this challenge, by emailing
  2. Plus a group of us will be bringing along the quilts we made in the last challenge, which used Riley Blake fabric. Watch this space for great group photos of our quilts.

Riley Blake challenge

One of the joys of being in the Canberra Modern Quilt Group is the international fabric give aways! The first one we’ve been involved in – which closes today – was the Riley Blake challenge. Along with thousands of other quilters world wide, we received packs of fabric to make something quilted. This is Sylvia’s quilt. We’ll be bringing our challenge quilts along to the next meeting – 27 February 7.30 at the civic library.
