April Meeting

For our April meeting, we had the lovely Judy from Easy Sew give us an informative presentation on haberdashery.

Judy gave TMQG members some helpful tips on oiling the bobbin case in computerised machines and changing machine needles when necessary. She then talked in depth about different sewing needles and their uses.

We learned about twin needles, drilling needles and wing needles and Judy provided lovely examples for us to look at.
I think all members came away from this presentation knowing a bit more about needles so thank you Judy!

TMQG President Helen Stubbings announced her "Presidents Challenge" due 1st August 2016.

Then it was time for a huge Show & Tell with plenty of amazing quilts on display!
