Saturday Afternoon Meeting 2012

Peggy Fearne, Bags Galore

Our guest speaker on Saturday was Peggy Fearne who not only brought in some of the bags she has made, but also gave us a brief history of the reticule and showed slides of some of the magnificent bags in the Sheffield Museums collection. 

Peggy also constructs 3D textiles based on origami folding which can be viewed here and is a member of the "Alive and Stitching" Textile Group. An enjoyable afternoon.

May's Morning Meeting 2012

The morning session, where we chat and sew, has been very successful for those who attend. It gives our members a chance to talk about the work they're doing and the opportunity to learn new techniques from one another.

If anyone in the group wants to learn anything in particular, or to pass on a skill we can arrange to do these at the morning sessions.

Jennifer has been embroidering this South African scene

and Freda, who hasn't stitched since school days, is embroidering a daffodil. One of our members suggested she completes the whole picture in stem stitch, then will know one stitch thoroughly.

will we see more of you at next month's morning session?
