Stitched Papar Collage

We had a great workshop with Anne Brooke last Saturday. Lots of paper was torn and cut  and then stitched to create a large variety of collage pieces. Anne demonstrated each stage of the process , throughout the day ending up with her own collaged picture.

Anne's collaged picture created during the workshop

 Collaged pictures at various stages of completion. Looking forward to seeing them fully stitched .

Needles and more

How many of you have a favourite needle that you like to use? Did you know that needles wear out and that we should always start a project with a new needle and probably change it several times during the making of a piece of work?
Karen Perry gave us a very informative talk on needles and of course we all had to buy new ones for our projects. Karen works for John James Needles, a company synonymous with the very best of needle manufacture, quality and reliability. 

Jacqui also brought in her pieces for the fire screen for the Fountains Exhibition. Hope they will inspire you to create your own 2” x 3” pieces for the screen.
