Patchwork & Quilting
The Patchwork & Quilting group is Bromyard U3A’s newest interest group and has five members at the moment. We are of mixed ability with a common love of sewing. Here’s what one of our group has to say: “As someone who has only attempted hand patchwork before, I have been welcomed into the group and given loads of tips and advice by the other members to help me get started on machine work. It’s really good to have other, more experienced, people to ask for help.” A number of us drew inspiration from the Leominster Quilters when we attended their exhibition in October 2017, and in November we enjoyed a fun morning at one member’s home who demonstrated a couple of her cutting gadgets and gave us a “show and tell” session of her various craft works. We meet on a monthly basis but have agreed no specific day at the moment. New members are welcomed with open arms.
