Phyllis Brown showed the group how to tie off a sampler - the correct way! She was so exact in her technique and explanations. As always, it's such a delight to learn from one of our seasoned and professional teachers!
Saturday the learning continued with a workshop on the Wee Care gowns. Participants came with their gowns ready to attach the bias bands. Kathy Dykstra shared her method for easy bias bands and Phyllis Brown shared her tips as well which resulted in a wealth of valuable information for everyone.
After getting bias bands attached, the group moved on to pintucks. Machines were tweaked, tucks practiced and eventually corded pintucks and scalloped pintucks were shown and practiced. It was a great morning of fun and fellowship while continuing to learn and perfect new techniques!
As happens with all our workshops, we have curious people in the building stopping by to check out what we're up to. Sharon never misses an opportunity to find out if they so and to invite them to our meetings. LOL. Overall, it was a great success and we are looking forward to more gatherings and workshops over the course of 2015!!! This has been a great start to this new year.
If you're interested in finding out more about our guild and visiting, please don't hesitate to contact us through this blog and join us at the next meeting! We will meet again on the second Thursday evening in February - Feb. 5th at 7pm at the Keller Williams Ballentyne office building. Hope to see you there!
Until then, keep on stitching......
