Alveva Quilters and Annette Morgan

Alveva Quilters of Feltwell meet once a month, on the third Wednesday at 7pm and we have some wonderful evenings with 'Show and Tell' and then often a speaker or technique led evening. We were lucky enough to have Annette Morgan come to share her work and her latest inspiration with us.
Annette is also a City and Guilds teacher so her knowledge of quilting and textiles is vast. We all had a wonderful evening and the group brought her DVD for our library box. Thank you Annette for sharing your work and time with us. You will often see Annette at shows and Exhibitions be sure to say, 'hello' or visit her website HERE

City and Guilds Colour Wheel and Machining

I love colour so when showing and explaining the Colour Wheel there is lots of ways to enjoy doing it.
We start on paper but then it turns to printing, dyeing threads and fabrics and of course ultimately to stitch and machining. Using materials and threads you have created yourself just makes it even more interesting and unique.

Gallery Mixed Media Tuesday

I demonstrate different techniques each week and this week I demonstrated couching using hand and by machine. Jane did some wonderful couching, photograph above using different threads stitches and feet. Jenny used the couching on top of her embellished pieces to make them a more textured surface.

Textile Tuesday 17th April 2012

Barbara has really perfected Crazy Patchwork and it shows here in her Scissor Case. Made with scraps and in a similar tonal range with lace and added embroidery, it is so subtle and beautiful.
See her first Scissor Case based on my example HERE
