A lovely day on all fronts -there were probably 30 of us in all and plenty of soup to go around! Lots of interesting bags arrived containing various sewing projects and essentials –
…. even bags being completed during the day
We had a messy corner, where Jane coaxed fabulous printed fabrics out of all participants
Heather ran a Project Linus corner and helped newbie Helen make her very first quilt – result!
(Apologies for the photo quality – the white strip on the pic above is actually a shaft of sunlight! and Barbara is STILL getting to grips with her new camera ..)
There was a studio clearout table which received a lot of quiet and determined attention and support -as a result we raised more than £70 for the local hospice in donations.
Tracey’s Make & Take table was busy throughout the day – make a simple wrist pincushion from the kits she had carefully prepared earlier. Very handsome they looked too!
Chris was able to show some of the finer points of the Electric Quilt design programme and print out results – there were several deep discussions at this table during the day!
In the middle of the room it was all action, machines, cutters and fabric. The handstitching brigade shared some of the smaller tables as well as some laughs –
So, as you can see, there was lots going on and it was great fun. The 60s music was sometimes audible over the hum of machines and general chatter, we found some real 60s fabric and a piece of 60s patchwork
There were sufficient enquiries as to when the next sewing day was that it may even become an annual event!
