Pat Bootland‘s recent class, Box Construction, was popular for members looking for a way to display small pieces of embroidery. Of course, Pat came prepared to give us plenty of inspiration in the form of her own sample boxes, plus books and magazines that the Library helpers had kindly found for the class:
Class members (especially me) appreciated that in week 2 Pat helped us to sort out any “technical difficulties” we had found since week 1!
Not all boxes were finished by the end of the second class, so here are just a couple:
Dorothy Brann used her lovely Hardanger sample
Here is the first of Sarah Kimmorley‘s Canvaswork samples to create Christmas box gifts.
The Creative Group meeting in May was playing with Dorset Buttons with a Difference. Once again, Library volunteers had produced some books and magazines, Pat Bootland and Fran Novitski had organised supplies and samples, and there was plenty of work in progress:
Last but not least, our School Holiday Program was once again full of fun and stitching activity. Felties were not the only projects on offer, but I managed to photograph these:
Sweet budgie was made by Ada, frog with bling by Sam, and stylish penguin by Maddy. It’s hard to believe, but the next school holidays will be upon us soon, and Lel Whitbread as usual has planning under control.
Don’t forget, you don’t have to be a Guild member to join our classes, although there are Member and Non-member class fees. You can check for any of our upcoming classes/workshops here, and Special Interest Groups here. Or check our What’s on at a glance page any time, visitors are always welcome.
Happy, and creative, stitching.
