Margaret Beale workshop

The May workshop was with the lovely Margaret Beale.  She is rightly very well known for her fabulous work with a soldering iron and we were lucky to have the benefit of all those years of experience.   After a quick introduction she went straight into demonstration.

How to use to make patchwork.
 Soon we were all busy soldering. Looks like a production line here!
 Smiles all round - working hard but having fun too

 A really great day. Thanks to Margaret for being so generous in sharing her time and expertise.
