Playing with Threads by Sheena Norquay, at 11am
Small is Beautiful, by Hilary Gooding, at 3pm
Gillian Travis, Hilary Gooding and Sheena J Norquay met while teaching at the Quit Symposium in Durban, South Africa in July 2015. They stayed with Hilary’s sister Phil Fisher after the Symposium and visited some fabric shops selling African fabrics as well as visiting Odette Tolksdorf, a leading South African quilt artist, introduced to them by Phil. Gillian set a challenge for the 5 quilters to make a piece using the African fabrics.
While teaching at the Cowslip workshops, Jo Colwill asked Sheena if she would be interested in having an exhibition and so Sheena thought it would be an excellent opportunity to display the 5 pieces as well as displaying her own work, Gillian’s and Hilary’s.
Gillian, Hilary and Sheena have very different styles of work and will show pieces made on different themes as well as African inspired pieces which link them together.
