Well done Halifax

Check out the Halifax blog, they have produced a wonderful entry for the 'Pass it On' competition in June.  What a lovely idea to donate it to the Children's Hospice. 

Well done and good luck to all of you.

Machine Embroidery Day

Cornucopia bags

Heads left!
 Is this Ryedales first sweat shop?  It sounded like one with ten machines going all at once.  This was our second attempt at machine embroidery with Eileen Gibson.  Everyone so enjoyed the first day we had when we made book covers using pre-set stitches on our machines, that we booked a second day in January.  We made the cornucopia bags shown above which really looked lovely, my photo doesn't do them justice.  We are so carried away with our prowess that we have booked a third session on March 12th, so watch this space.  If anyone else would like to join us, please contact the treasurer.
