September News

This evening we were delighted to welcome Barbara Barber back to
Wombourne Quilters.

It has been 18 years since Barbara last visited us and she told us how
nervous she had been on that occasion. No nerves were evident this
evening as Barbara displayed wonderful quilts which had won awards all
over the world.

Barbara shared techniques on applique and machine quilting with us
and also some excellent tips. She has promised to come back and visit
the group again when she has completed her Equinox quilt. We all look
forward to that visit.
