September 2017 Meeting and Workshop

On Monday 18 September our meeting was an in-house mini workshop where we made very small pin cushions, mounted on plastic bottle tops and decorated in coloured felts in a variety of styles, whilst we caught up with the news of the summer and the administration of paying our subs for the year.

We met up again on Saturday 23 September for our in-house workshop led by Christine, our branch co-chairman. She took us through the process of making beautiful bags in multi-coloured fabrics, incorporating pockets, zips and a lot of imagination.

The initial process was quite complicated but fortunately Christine was on hand to give us lots of encouragement and to make sure our seams and zips all went in the right way!

By the end of the afternoon we had produced a set of delightful bags, large enough for all our sewing bits and bobs but small enough to be a manageable size.

Thank you Christine for all your hard work in the preparation for the day. I know I can speak for all of us in saying how much we enjoyed it.
