Each meeting we have a display of work and this time it was the turn of Jenny Parker. Some beautiful examples of her work!

National Day of Stitch 2016

Several Members stitched and displayed pieces of work in libraries near Nottingham.








Flower Pounding Workshop

One Saturday in May, nine members attended a workshop given by Linda Rudkin.  There was a lot of tapping from our hammers as we transferred images from petals and leaves onto fabric.  In the afternoon we learnt how to trap plant material onto fabric - these results could be used for cards and pictures. 

We all enjoyed a relaxing and creative day with many ideas for future experimentation.
