Quilt Groups - Nowra - Illawarra

Well the first one of these is easy, as I went there when living at Meroo Meadow near Nowra. I spent a few months in the area before coming upon one by mishap really. After buying and collecting firewood, I was driving home and noticed a little sign by the entry to a series of buildings along the South Nowra section of the Pacific Highway.
I drove down and around the round about and came back towards the building. Now as I said before I had only just been collecting firewood and was wearing shorts, gumboots and a very grubby shirt. I didnt let this worry me until after I walked in. I must have looked a sight but the lady behind the counter smiled acknowledgement and mouthed, wont keep you a moment as she was one the phone.
Not long after, I started back at Patchwork classes - and hand sewing to boot !
The name has changed by the management is the same and there is heaps more classes. Thank you Danni Reynolds at The Quilting Patch. I enjoyed working with you and all the ladies there. Special Thanks to Jo, Barb, Betty and Toni :)

  1. There are many Church groups in and around Nowra offering classes and get togethers. There is quite a few Quilt Shows throughout the year as well. Ring one of the Blog quilt shops - each one will know about at least one show :)
