Are you aged 40 or younger and sew? Please consider helping out Naomi on her dissertation. She is doing a fascinating topic. Sadly I’m too old to get involved but I urge everyone who is eligible to get involved.
Exploring the experiences of people (aged 40 years and younger) who sew as a hobby and the role sewing has played in their lives
Full details of the study and how to contact Naomi can be found at https://startingstitch.wordpress.com/2017/06/02/what-does-sewing-mean-to-you/
If you are free over the weekend of 16/17th June please visit the Camberwell Arts open studio that one of our members is a part of.
Head to the Southbank Centre and learn to English Paper Piece on the 31st May and meet some of our lovely members. Try your hand at this traditional skill which is commonly used in modern quilting.
One of our members is speaking at this event in March. For more info and a link to buy tickets please got to http://www.mindfulnesscentreofexcellence.com/

I hope you have all had a lovely holiday season! We’re looking forward to lots more stitching fun in 2017, so the following dates have been confirmed for 2017 meetings:
8th January — Don’t forget to bring your Liberty challenge fabrics to swap with fellow members for our Making Liberty Modern Challenge.
5th February — Don’t forget to bring your Liberty challenge fabrics to swap with fellow members for our Making Liberty Modern Challenge.
August – NO MEETING
3rd December — Christmas Party, with lunch catered by Star Tavern
As you know, we normally meet on the first Sunday of each month, but some dates have been adjusted to avoid coinciding with holidays.
All meetings are at noon at the Star Tavern, Belgravia.
Look forward to seeing you all there!
Firstly, thanks to everyone who joined in the fun at our first ever Christmas Party! It was great fun, because so many came along and participated.
In case you weren’t able to come along to the party, we announced a LMQG challenge for 2017 called “Make Liberty Modern.” Each person who was a fully paid member at the time of our December meeting will receive a Liberty scrap pack for completing the challenge. We’ll have more programmes about the challenge in the coming months, and I’ll publish the details of the challenge rules here before Christmas, so keep an eye out for that post.
Any new members in 2017 will also receive a Liberty scrap pack, so that you can participate in the challenge.
Secondly, don’t forget that it’s time to renew our membership to the London MQG. Shevvy sent out the renewal email this week, so if you didn’t receive it, please contact me via email or IG, and I will make sure you get the information.
Finally, I’m just confirming next year’s meeting dates with the Star Tavern, and as soon as I have them firmed up, I’ll post the list here. There are a few that will need to be moved to avoid conflicts with holidays, including our first meeting of the new year.
In the meantime, I hope you’re all having a lovely holiday season! Happy Stitching!
The programme for our regular meeting on 4th December 2016 will be our Christmas Party. We will be meeting at the Star Tavern at noon as usual and will probably finish at bit later at around 3:00or 3:30 p.m.
Our guest speaker will be the lovely Jenny Haynes from Papper, Sax, Sten, who’ll be showing us some of her gorgeous quilts. (NOTE: There will be no member show-and-tell.)
Jenny will be joining us for our delicious Christmas lunch, catered by the Star Tavern, and a small item swap. There will also be a few other little treats for all attendees.
If you haven’t yet booked, please contact Donna on firstname.lastname@example.org or 07538 715 785 right away for all the details.
