Today was our last session of the year and, as always, members were full of energy and enthusiasm for all things sewing!
There were some amazing quilts shown after ‘morning prayers’. Kerry had bought a panel in Florida and turned it into a work of art with a beautifully blended border fabric, neat machine quilting and the inspired addition of hot fix diamante. We are looking forward to exhibiting her piece at our forthcoming exhibition.
She had also been experimenting with Inktense pencils
Caroline brought her recently completed quilt into show us – intricately paper pieced and machine quilted. A wonderful family heirloom.
Amanda showed an equally stunning piece of work lovingly made with all her fabric scraps – and a joy to behold both front and back
And Jan, whilst not with us today, had sent on a photo of a quilt that she had completed whilst pet sitting in Brighton
Jaci demonstrated her talent at crochet when she showed some little plant pot holders.
And Monica showed a small sampler that she was hand stitching – which is a bit of a first as she is not usually into slow sewing!
Pat was busy finishing another one of her lovely leather bags….
Chris was sharing her knowledge with Caroline to help her complete her denim bag
And Janet was busy checking out the Sissix machine to see whether it would cut foam sponge – and was thrilled to find it did. A good job that Salinder brought so much of the stuff with her then!
Finally, it was lovely to be able to welcome visitor Sue Toner who came to see what we all get up to – hopefully she will be back with us in September.
We now have a break and reconvene in September. Until then, wishing everyone a lovely summer.
