Advancing the Art and Craft of Textile Embellishment

A Day with Margaret Roberts (Digital Gran) / May 19th 2013

This was a day where we discarded our needles and thread and took to our laptops to learn with Maggie just how to convert graphics into textiles. Maggie guided each member so carefully through the programme they had chosen to work with. Everyone had regular breaks during the day which is so essential and this gave the members time to be able to have a really good look through all of the wonderful samples and folders that Maggie had in her display of unfinished /finished work. It was lovely for the members to see just how Maggie had developed the original design source into an end product.  For most of the day the whole room was so quiet and by the end of our day you could understand why. Each member had created a selection of lovely designs and had the knowledge to continue as Maggie had been so patient. Everyone had also been given written instructions relevant to the programme they had chosen to use. This rounded the whole experience as Maggie had produced very simple instructions that would be easy to follow and a good reminder of what had been shown throughout the day. What a lovely experience and with no stitching in sight.
