Quilting and Pom-poms

I went to the sewing circle of my WI last night (the not-so-very-local-to-me-but-worth-the-journey, East End branch, The Shoreditch Sisters) where we are beginning to piece together a quilt for the Stop Domestic Violence Campaign. Members all over the country are contributing squares, and our branch has volunteered to sew them all together. We were also joined by some photographers from The Telegraph's Stella magazine in which we are to be featured in a few weeks time (v. exciting!). I also agreed to help run a WI stall at the Barbican Library's Autumn Fete tomorrow. It was all a bit last minute and I think we are just demonstrating how to make tassels and pom-poms, but do pop by if you are in the area! Details below and here.
