Next Meeting

Friday, 22 March 2019
9.30am at St Luke’s Anglican Church Hall, Berry

Guest Speaker—Cath Babbage 

Here is a note from Cath about her herself.
"I started quilting 25 years ago with lessons at the Quilting Bee in Gordon in Sydney. Noni Fisher was my teacher and I loved her classes.

I also stitched with a group of women, some of us are still together, and we called ourselves the Cut Loose Group. I think that still defines how I sew. The Cut Loose Group spent some time sewing at Material Obsession with Kathy Doughty and Sarah Fielke. I’m still with the shop and Kathy, firstly working, and now teaching a class called ‘Resourceful use of Fabric’.

I have been a member of QuiltNSW for about 15 years and was on the committee for three years, one of those years I was president."
