Have Sewing Machine will Travel

Liz Ward, a trained art teacher, entertained us with her tales of her life living in Kenya, Nepal and Oman. She brought many samples of her work. She loves gardening and this is often apparent in her work. Using whatever fabrics were available to her at the time, including cutting up curtains and sheets, she created large appliqu├ęd pieces. It just goes to show that no matter where you are and with limited resources you can always find a way to release you inner creativity.

Fiona Wilson Workshop

We all had a fun filled day with Fiona creating a number of 3-D stitch techniques. There was certainly no time to get bored as we packed in lots of different samples to take home and extend further if we wished. We pleated, smocked, stuffed and rolled! Here are some of the samples produced on the day.
