16th November

Hi Everyone,

We are so lucky to have such talented members at Hunters Hill Quilters. Where quilting is our main objective our members are continually creating and perfecting other skills, so it shouldn’t surprise us when Hayley was able to visit us today and show us her latest project. Hayley went to Java to learn batik material printing and we were thrilled that she brought in some of her material she printed and coloured at the workshop she attended. The process is long and physical taking days to achieve the printing and colouring of the material. Hayley added she will never complain about the cost of batik fabric when purchasing it, after experiencing the hard days of work needed to finish each piece of fabric. She enjoyed the experience so much that she is eager to go back and learn more techniques.

Some example of Hayley’s batik printing

Annual General Meeting will be held on Saturday 18th November at Club Burwood RSL, 96 Shaftesbury Road Burwood. Time 10am doors open at 9:45am. Non members are welcome to attend but cannot vote.

We will be holding our Christmas Party on Thursday 7th December starting at 11am. Bring a plate of food to share, a glass, and a plate for yourself.
