Last week I traveled Up North, and Down South to teach my Striped Pieced Landscape class.
First I visited the North Cheshire Embroiderers and then it I went to the Shirley Quilters, Croydon, which for non U.K. readers is just outside London.
I love doing this class as it is always a pleasure to see what gets created. These two groups did not disappoint and as usual I have come away with more ideas than I went with.
Having not taught this class to an embroidery group before I was interested to see what fabrics they would arrive with. Velvet, lace and cork made an appearance and I am now desperate to get my hand on some sari silk!
The quilters weren't afraid to to try something different either, a few working with upholstery fabrics and felt.
...and no I haven't repeated some photos. Those that look like repeats are same piece done in a different way. These ladies were prepared to play and experiment.
Not all of the pieces are completed here and I look forward to seeing the finished results1
A big Thank You to both groups for inviting me.
