The Regional Day at Llanbradach community centre, organised by our co-ordinator, Gill Clark, took place on a very hot June day. But we didn't notice the heat as we were kept well entertained by our 2 speakers, Joan Weston and Susan Briscoe.
Joan showed us some of her latest work, including one she had only finished the night before! A New Zealand mountain view which was now framed for us to see. Another quilt she showed us was inspired by Monet and included quilting interpretations of his work.
Susan showed us many examples of sashiko embroidery which she has collected on her trips to Japan. Some members were even asked to model them! Susan also showed us examples of boro. Using recycled material to make quilts, bags etc. Susan has recently been involved with the V&A and there is a link on their site with instructions to make your own boro bag
