IWD at the Council

To mark International Women's Day, my local council had an afternoon tea and quilt-making session.  I found myself there to show people how to make the QAYG blocks for the Oz Comfort Quilts appeal.

About 15 council employees, who ranged from beginners to experienced sewists, plus women from the Multicultural Women's Sewing Group (who provided the machines) had fun making blocks. In fact they were so engrossed that the yummy afternoon tea went almost untouched!
(My council rates at work.)

I'll show you the results next week, when a second session is planned.
