August Show and Tell

We had a most interesting return to the Mount Waverley Community Centre in August. Members were very keen to see the renovations and inspected all areas thoroughly. 

It was a very cold evening and it was noted that the heating system was not completely operational.

Even our guest speaker Christine Lethlean stayed rugged up while telling her fascinating story of growing up on a farm in Western Australia. It was here that she learned to value every scrap of fabric. She has transformed this ethos into beautiful textile art.

Christine now lives in Clunes where she has her studio. This, we learned, is named after her parents Margie and Bert  She is currently working with machine appliqué creating mainly framed works.

Show and Tell

The hall has been changed dramatically and as the stage has gone displaying quilts for show and tell was difficult. A portable stage is part of the promised equipment, but it is not yet ready. So apologies for not being able to show the large quilts in their entirety.

Hamish at 11 years, is our youngest member and had to be at school when awards were presented at Victorian Quilters Showcase in July. He won Runner Up in the Student Quilts – Primary category for Rainbow Ladders. 

We can now update our photographic record with a photo of Hamish and his ribbon. Congratulations Hamish for this terrific original design.

Our other award winners are here.
