This Saturday we are attending The Quilters Guild regional meeting which happens to be in Wendover this year. Lots of our PlainStitchers are coming along with their quilts to show and tell. I couldn't be prouder. We teach our students how to make a quilt, but not just one quilt...we teach them how to make their ideas real in fabric and stitches. I'm excited about sharing their fab work with the Quilters Guild.
This week we've all been obsessed with embroidery...our new Aurifloss threads are much in demand, and inspiring so much fantastic work.
I've been sewing Christmas Cushions....as you do in May!
Sue's been sewing up a patchwork waistcoat....so fab!
Sometimes finding a heart shaped froth on your hot choc is just the best x
