Below are some images of some of the work. Barbara’s silver piece is just visible in bothphotographs below, it was No. 8.

Christmas decorations mini-workshop

At our November meeting, we held a mini workshop where Regina showed us how to make felt Christmas tree decorations. The pictures below illustrate the types of things that can be made very easily from felt.

Postcard challenge

Our first challenge, set at our inaugural meeting in July 2018 and judged in September was to make a fabric postcard. It needed to be something you could actually put in the post. Sue Hart had made postcards before and she shared some that she had made and received and brought along books which were well illustrated with examples.

Most of us rose to the challenger and in September produced the following results, with Sue’s being voted the winner. Below you see the entries.
