Finishing off day: Sunday 25 October

July 18th, 2015

We hope everyone enjoyed the weekend last month. Lots of fun, lots of new projects started and old ones completed! Thanks for coming along. Below is a pic of the raffle quilt from last year’s competition blocks - the theme was “Outback”. It’s been quilted but just needs binding. Didn’t it turn out well?

Here’s some info about our finishing off day on Sunday 25 October.

You can work on any project of your choice, or finish off something you started at this year’s GPW. Here’s your chance to deal with one of your UFOs (unfinished projects)!

To help you out, we will have some demonstrations on overcoming finishing off challenges…. things like “how much fabric should I buy for binding?” and “How do I mitre the corners of my quilt?”

Cost for the day is just $40 and includes morning and afternoon tea. Please provide your own lunch - there are plenty of places in Gunning or you can bring your own.
