Stumpwork and Crewel Work

Here is Christina beavering away at the stumpwork day in the Quilt Museum in York.  This was a continuation of the classes held at the Regional Workshop weekend last year. The day was enjoyed by all and it looks as though plenty of work was done.

Over twenty members of the Branch enjoyed the crewel workshop held at Wrelton on Saturday 26th March.  Phillipa Turnbull was an excellent tutor and we all went home with our heads buzzing with new techniques.  I hope a few of you will have finished your pieces before the next meeting so that we can display a few photos on the blog.

Next machine embroidery day is Saturday 14th May when we will be looking at metals and cellophanes.

Bonding & Burning

We had another good machine embroidery day with Eileen.  This time we were bonding and burning which was great fun.  Everyone is enjoying these days, especially the chance to just sit at the sewing maching and play for a whole day. We have all said that we wouldn't do that at home.  Here are some of the finished samples we did and if anyone else would like to join us we hope to have another day on the 14th May when we will be machining metal.
