Guild Meeting Thursday 19th November 2009
Come along and help us celebrate our 17th Birthday - yes 17 years old this year.
During the evening our guest speaker will be Mariya Waters. We are looking forward to meeting this Austalian award winning quilter. Mariya currently specialises in hand appliqué and machine quilting but has also won international awards for contemporary art and innovative quilts.
Mariya began quilting in New Zealand in 1990 and her first quilt was selected for a juried quilt show and then published in a book. In 1994 while living in England her third quilt won the prestigious Ascot Trophy at the national championships.
Since then Mariya has specialised in making quilts for exhibition with most taking a year or more to complete. Have a look at her website.
Come along and enjoy the birthday atnosphere and friendship of fellow quilters - there is sure to be a beautiful array of Show n Tell as well.
