At our meeting next Monday Yvonne will be giving us a hands on demonstration/workshop on making these delightful little zippered boxes.
Yvonne has prepared 18 kits and if you would like to participate in this workshop you will need to bring the following with you:
Your sewing machine with walking foot and zipper foot;
White or neutral thread and black thread;
Two loaded bobbins, one with white/neutral thread and one with black thread.
All fabric, backing and zippers will be provided with the lesson.
It should be fun and at the end of the day we'll have 18 more box bags to pass on to people to need them - how good is that?
Further to our last post the quilts that were to be given to the Women's Refuge in Chermside were quickly redirected to Banksia Ward at Royal Children's Hospital (the largest children's oncology ward in Queensland) who had an urgent need for them, and we have also supplied Mitchelton Special School, Calmvale Special School and Redland District Special School with 6 weighted blankets and 1 Touchy Feely quilt to each school, and also 6 weighted blankets to Darling Point Special School.
See you all on Monday,
