On Tuesday my quilt group, Country Roads Quilters, are having an Open Day. This is a photograph I took at our last meeting of L-R: Fenella, Di, Diane, Sabine, Trish and June and it has been published in the local papers with a small press release so I hope it attracts a few new members. We are now meeting in the village hall at Sibsey and so have room for some new quilters to join us. I don't think any of you are close enough to join the group but, in case you know anyone who is, the press release follows below with the details.
Come and Quilt in Sibsey
A small group of patchwork and quilters have been meeting in Sibsey since September 2011. Country Roads Quilters are now inviting new members to join them and will be holding an Open Day in Sibsey Village Hall on Tuesday 15th January.
Lis Harwood, a founder member of Country Roads Quilters, told us,
"We are a friendly group of patchworkers and quilters now meeting at Sibsey Village Hall on the third Tuesday of each month. In these larger premises we are able to invite prospective new members to bring their current stitching project or they are welcome to just come and meet us. We will be working on our own projects and will have some finished items for visitors to see."
Country Roads Quilters are also delighted to say that Wendy Strode of Camelot Crafts in Friskney will be at the Open Day with a wide selection of fabrics and craft items for sale. Tina McEwen, also a founder member of Country Roads Quilters, said,
"We all love Wendy's shop as she has such a wonderful selection of fabrics, threads and other interesting items and she is always so willing to share her ideas and expertise with us. We are delighted that she will be at our Open Day."
Visitors are welcome between 10.00 a.m. and 3.00 p.m. and are invited to bring their current quilting project with them and a packed lunch if they are able to stay for the whole day. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be included in the £2 admission to the Open Day and full membership details will be available on the day.
