Yvonne Brown's Talk at Alveva Quilters September Meeting

We were lucky at the September Alveva Meeting as we
had Yvonne Brown gives us a talk on her
trip to New Zealand for the Quilt Symposium.
She was one of the Tutors at the event.
Yvonne was the originator of
Alveva Quilters and is also our President.
She has contributed so much to
Patchwork and Quilting.
She showed us slides of her trip and showed
us some of her new work including a commission piece
based on the Sutton Hoo Helmet.
Yvonne had also brought along
several copies of her book,
'Tex-tiles and other Treasure:
Using Medieval Tiles and Stonework'.
I brought a copy and she kindly signed it
for me!
I highly recommend it if you want to
experiment with heat and soldering techniques.
Thank you Yvonne for a lovely talk,
so inspirational.
You can buy her book and see
more of Yvonne's work on her

  1. Just saw an example of the heat and soldering technique at Quilt National last week. We stood in front of it for about 15 minutes trying to figure out how it was done. Really effective. She ran a copper wire through the layers to solder the metal drops onto.
