April Members Day

Our members day is a great opportunity for everyone to pop along and have a catch up chat whilst working on their own projects.

 Una decorating a panel with kantha stitching. She died the pieces of fabric then assembled them into this attractive panel.

  There was lots of bling at the April members’ workshop. This beaded butterfly is work in progress.

 The relaxed atmosphere of the day provided an opportunity to look more closely at some of the wonderful work in the travelling books.

  Elaine’s panel was much admired. Beautiful colours! Stitching is thirsty work though so lots of cups of tea were needed.

Lorraine’s completed pincushion is covered in French knots whilst the next one has a beautiful lavender design.

 By contrast, Dina spent the day working on pieces of rust-dyed fabric.

  More cups of tea and Margaret’s workbox is overflowing with creativity. Meanwhile Joy was busy creating a set of panels to illustrate a poem by Walter de la Mare.

 Here are examples of the varied work that our members create. Lilian has started stitching into a piece of nuno felt that she made during our recent residential weekend. Gill is making an applique panel as part of a larger project.

 We also spent some time preparing the materials for the National Stitch Day activities. Here are Margaret, Carole and Karina busy cutting felt to size.

 Debbie’s beautiful panel.

 A lovely day enjoyed by all (Thanks to Gail for the text and photos)
