2QApp – Applique Quilters
2QApp is a social group of members with a common interest in applique and other hand work e.g. English paper piecing, hand piecing etc.
We meet twice a month and usually have either a ‘Topic of Discussion’ eg: Different ways to create stems, or a Guest Speaker. Most of the meetings are social, sewing on your own project and chatting to other members. Show and Tell is a major component of each meeting with lots of sharing ideas and techniques. Questions are encouraged, as we have members of all skill levels who are willing to share.
All members of Qld Quilters are welcome and you can come to either or both days. Bring along your sewing, tools/equipment and a packed lunch (fridge & microwave facilities available) or there are a number of local coffee shops that you may wish to visit. Tea and coffee is provided, BYO cup.
As we are a social group, our 2QApp gatherings are a way to meet others that you may have not met or spoken to at a members meeting. Visitors are welcome to attend one meeting or gathering before becoming an individual member of Qld Quilters Inc.
