Fat Quarterly retreat

A number of our members spent an enjoyable weekend at the recent Fat Quarterly Retreat, held in London and attended by quilters from the UK, Europe and beyond.  As well as the opportunity to make new friends and reconnect with old friends there were some great classes which have inspired our creative passions since the weekend ended.  Lucie prefers hand work to machine sewing which stood her in good stead at her first class when a power cut stopped everyone but her in their tracks and she was able to continue with this petal block.
