Paula says: Dive Into Your Stash

This post applies only to Northern Ireland Patchwork Guild Members  

We have been invited to take part in this year’s Crafting Live exhibition in the Titanic Exhibition Hall.

Paula, our Chair invites you to submit a small piece which will be used to decorate the NIPG space and wonders if you have a stash of fabric? If so, please ‘Dive Into Your Stash’.

There may be quilters  unaware of  the occupational hazard, which afflicts many quilters – a compulsion to accumulate fabric, referred to as a ‘stash’.

According to the Oxford English Dictionary the definition of stash is:

1. A store or supply of something, typically one that is kept hidden or secret.

2. Store (something) safely and secretly in a specified place.

A quilter’s stash begins with the purchase of fabric for the first project and quickly grows.  There are many substantiated reports of a quilter’s stash multiplying overnight.

The acquisition of fabric is justified as being essentially a  quilter’s palette or a ‘creative resource centre’  A quilter’s stash is actually a place to go for inspiration and ideas when planning the quilting for a project.  A highly organised stash may look like this:

Whichever way you’ve organised it or indeed not organised it, Paula invites you to:

“DIVE INTO YOUR STASH.”

 

 

 

 

Completed pieces should be brought to the April Meeting on Saturday 7th April.
