September Meeting 2018

September is the month for paying subs so we had an informal meeting with one of our members, Sarah Maddison, showing us how to develop ideas by using images from magazines, paint and tissue paper to create designs that can be converted into stitch.

Sarah brought some of her sketchbooks to show us and it was fascinating to see how she had laid out her research into a beautifully displayed and artistic design.

Some of us had brought cuttings from magazines, but Sarah had a large supply of pictures to share and amid the chatter we set to work. We tore and cut the images and using glue, ink and paint we spent a happy hour experimenting.

It's quite amazing what can be produced in such a short space of time. All you need is a little imagination!

Thank you Sarah, for showing us how to develop ideas with only a few of the simplest resources.
