There is something very special about a New Year and the group got off to a wonderful start under the guidance of Ann Edwards. Our ladies spent the day using tucks, folds and pleats to create both cornets and coronets. These techniques created delightful texture when working with fabric. Ann had a delightful display of work at one end of the hall to give inspiration on how these techniques could be used. There were boxes, cushions, bags and quilts. All of which had been beautifully finished with Ann’s clever use of colour, fabric and stitch. At the end of the day members had produced a stash of samples, a lovely Christmas tree hanging and lots of inspiration of things they could make. The handful of members who didn’t participate worked on their own with such things as hand embroidery and finishing off their Pipkin from the December meeting.
