Ribbons and more!

One of our members has shared what she has been up to over the last few months. The first piece was inspired by an article in Stitch magazine "A good carbon footprint".

Joan did a silk ribbon course with Nicola Hulme before lock down which inspired the bouquet of flowers.
The lovely felted owl was inspired by a poster by Linda Wright.
Thank you for sharing your lovely work Joan.

All that glitters...

Another beautiful piece of work done by one of our members. The outer leaves are acrylic painted Evolon. To get the depth of colour she wanted Jennie sprayed them with Brusho then melted them. 

The inner petals and centre of the  flower are traditional Goldwork.  The petals are wired with the stems pulled through to the back to form a hanging loop.

Please keep sending  me work to share.

7 Day Birthday Calendar!

Another member has been busy making scrub bags and face masks. But she still found time to make this gorgeous 7 day calendar for her granddaughters. I've not  heard of these before but it's a calendar of seven beds. Teddy sleeps a night in each bed before opening the doors at the bottom to reveal a party. Not being able to pop to the shops for fabric can make you more creative as Helen had to dye some of the fabrics to go with her existing ones.

Harrogate Scrubbers

I know several of our members have been making scrubs, bags, gowns etc during the pandemic. Everyone that I've spoken to has said it's been a wonderful thing to be part of and feel like they helping in some way.
Louise has sent some pictures of the work she has been doing.

Louise has also volunteered to help make the commemorative quilts (every scrubber is making a 4” square ).

Thank you to Louise and everyone else that has been volunteering in some way.
I know that all the hard work volunteers have been doing is much appreciated by our wonderful NHS staff and other carers.
