We enjoyed an embroidery workshop with Rosemary Walker this month. Rosemary presented a felt pin cushion & felt needle keeper embellished with crazy embroidery. She inspired us to unleash our creativity. This meeting we concentrated on the embroidery, with the completion & construction of these two projects at our October meeting. Rosemary had been busy sourcing threads & embellishments for this project.
The evening was a huge success with almost all of our members attending. It was a fun evening as we sat, sewed and talked.

Margaret completed a cute mug bag.
Maria has also been busy knitting a soft shawl in variegated wool from Spain.
