Mini Workshops

We hold several mini workshops throughout the year,

They are always very popular.


Jan led a mini workshop showing us how to do reverse applique.

many of them run by our own members.

Jan had borrowed some applique work from the Guild's extensive collection, available to branches to borrow.

Time for getting together while Jan prepares.

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.
