Mini Workshops

We hold several mini workshops throughout the year,
  They are always very popular.

ZIPPY BROOCHES

Helen Livesey, a branch member led a workshop showing us how to make brooches using old zips.





 

 

DOORWAYS

Lois Wilkes, a branch member led a mini workshop called DOORWAYS.
Lois provided us with printed doorways which we could embroider using many different stitches and colours.  As usual, members succeeded in stitching their own personal view of colourful doorways, many of which were finished after the workshop.
