Quilting and Cake


We celebrated spring last week by holding an open morning. We served copious cups of coffee and tonnes of tea, cakes and biscuits were nibbled and  a good time seemed to be had by all.  Several ladies brought along their husbands who showed great interest in the mechanics of our HQ18 Avante Longarm Quilting Machine.

This was an opportunity for us to show off the machine, our abilities and to let anyone who wanted to have a little go.  Our machine is not computerized we do everything freehand and have a few clever aids to help us.

Our newest machine is a Sashiko which sews with appearance of hand quilting, the finish is amazing and we look forward to learning how to produce wonderful works of art with it.P1060906
