Creative Record Breaking …….

Hi everyone,

Its been a record breaking week for the sewing studio. 30 little stitchers (plus 12 more this Saturday) and 14 adults have been to learn new skills.

The stitchers entering the Quilting Festival this year have started to make up their designs that need to be in the theme of ‘free’.

First the younger group are focusing on hot air balloons……

My second group had chance to finish off the scrappy book covers they’ve been working on….

Later on Saturday we had the mother and daughter workshop. The challenge was complete a stitch test and make a cushion in pairs. 

Each pair did a fab job and left with new skills and a new cushion….

On Wednesday evening the Sewing Studio opened up for the Textile Art Workshop. Four ladies joined me to learn about free motion and raw edge appliqué to make and design an art canvas….
