Yesterday was a big day here in the UK!

 

There was the small detail of a Royal Wedding (and an even smaller football final!!), but the main event was happening in my classroom at Conway Mill!

 

Applique Sailboat Cushion Workshop

 

6 ladies rocked up for a day of sewing, making my Denim Sailboat Cushion.

 

And even though The Wedding was playing on my laptop in the background, these women were serious about learning hard and barely stopped for a lunch break!

 

 

For some, it was a first time venture into satin stitch applique and a little free motion sketching too (I think the celebratory tipple of Proseco might have helped, wink, wink!)

I’m sure you’ll agree, that these finishes (and almost finishes) look amazing!

 

Well done ladies on your focus, fun and fabulous creativity!

 

Full kits were available at the workshop, and I have a few left which I’ve listed in my shop.

 

The pattern is included in the kit, but if you would just like the pattern, you can find the digital download here.

 

Happy sewing!

Improv. Curved Placemats Tutorial

In keeping with our ‘curves’ theme this term, my monthly ‘5 minute lesson’ in classes this week was all about Improv. (improvisational) curves.   As the name suggests ‘improv.’ means you pretty much go with the flow and make up the curves as you go.  No two curves are the same, and there are much … Continue reading “Improv.
