Get Creative !

Hi everyone,

I hope you’ve been enjoying the sunshine  and had a lovely bank holiday weekend 🙂

This week I want to start with my little stitchers first.

Sewing Bee!

I’ve not had much to show you over the last two weeks as all of the groups are mid project but I can assure you I’ve got lots of great pics coming your way……however we did have some more socks teddies finished off.

At the beginning of a new month I plan the next months projects ( it never goes to plan but its a good starting point).

So my 8 -12yr groups are concentrating on tote bags, bows, hand bands and rainbow clouds. My 12- 16yr group are going to be learning beautiful bunting, stitch collage covers and a project of their choice.

The Sewing Bee has proven to be a great success and it really is so rewarding. With that in mind I have decided to set up an extra session on a Wednesday 4pm-5pm which starts on the 1st June. Click Here For Details

Next up are the pics of Thursdays Textile Art workshop – Textile Canvas.

In this workshops the ladies had to design and create a vase of flowers. Using free motion machining and different textiles and textures. I had so much fun on the workshop, the creativity and enthusiasm was so inspiring.
