We had a lovely day on Saturday during a workshop with NICOLA HULME, silk ribbon embroidery was a new technique to all of us. We made lots of progress through the day learning how to make roses by weaving the ribbon under and over thread, ribbon stitch was useful to make leaves and calix's. We finished off our pieces with chain, French knots and bullions.
We had a members day on Saturday working on items for Christmas which will be in our August exhibition and at St Johns Church Christmas Treee Festival in December. Members also did a show and tell of the work they had brought along.
Our talk in March with Janet Browne has been rearranged for the November meeting.
Therefore Our March meeting will be a members day working on items for the exhibition. Please bring along any Christmas fabrics that you have, we will begin our items for our tree which will be exhibited when complete at St Johns Church, Knaresborough in December at their Christmas Tree Festival. At our August exhibition we will display the tree in progress.
Alternatively bring along an item to work which will be exhibited in August.
