Busy Weekend

You may have noticed Judith's lovely pics and slideshow of last weekend's Exhibition and Fundraiser for the two charity quilting groups she is master encourager of.

As a taster here are a few pics I took myself -

The Vintage Sewing Room Exhibit

The Bake Off Exhibit

Large Quilts on display with a view beyond to our cafe area.

A place to lounge ... (at your peril!)

Bedroom Exhibit - complete with commode! (From a furniture upcycling workshop.)
Our Bee Blessed Craft Sale Table

Our friendly photographer Gordon was a star and took candid snaps throughout the day. His pics are much clearer and more artistic than mine and are the ones Judith has posted, so if you haven't seen the pics you must head over there now and have a wee nosey around.
Judith's 'In Stitches' Upcoming Classes and Workshops display
Judith's fabulous Irish Chain quilt which will be one of her new classes next term.

The exhibition's celebration of all the fabulous makes resulting from her classes and workshops throughout the year provides a perfect opportunity to showcase the new and upcoming projects that Judith has planned to further develop the creative talents of her local community.  And, next term I'm delighted (and slightly nervous) that I am going to be part of that in a new way!

Next term I am going to teach a wee Saturday workshop on embroidery - yes, me, imparting my enthusiasm for decorative hand-stitching and hopefully sharing a few wee tips and tricks along the way!

Through October I was stitching my wee fingers off to come up with these wee cuties for the class participants to choose from.  Each embroidery, while it might look complicated, provides an opportunity to experience several basic embroidery stitches and techniques to get folks well started on the road to acquiring new skills.  Well, that's the plan anyway.  So, if you fancy a wee stitchy day with me, Judith is now taking bookings for this workshop and lots of other fab classes too. Woohoo!


  1. some lovely photos here, it must have been a wonderful place to be and see all the quilts up close. Your embroidery wee cuties are certainly very cute, enjoy your classes, I love to do hand embroidery, it is so relazing, oh for more time!

  2. Wow! That looks like an amazing exhibition. You have done an amazing job. The pixelated heart quilts look stunning hanging across the hall. Your embriodery hangings are sweet and I want to come to class too! Di x

  3. looks like a good day. Loving seeing your embroideries Sarah. Like most of my generation, I loved to embroider with my mum and felt it was a lost skill, but not much use for dressing table sets these days.
    Lovely to see it revived and in a new fresh way.

  4. Look at all that wonderful textile goodness!! And a huge "yay!" for your embroidery class - I couldn't choose what one to make, they are all fabulous!!!

  5. These embroidery frames are gorgeous! The owl is so cute! Wish I would be closer to you so I could have a Sunday crafting ...

  6. The class is half booked up already!! Jxo

  7. How exciting! Your embroideries are gorgeous :)

  8. You ladies did great!!
    Love those embroideries xxx

  9. You all did an amazing job, and you will be fantastic at teaching the embroidery class

  10. Thanks for the virtual tour...the embroideries are fab and I'm sure your students will love them...if I was there. I'd chose the camper van...with flowers...I'm not allowed to stick any on ours!

  11. Oh, gosh, I'd love to take that embroidery class!! Maybe I can squeeze a day trip in! Must consult with diary and hubby. In the meantime, fabulous photos of what was obviously a fabulous day! Well done!

  12. Looks like a fabulous day all round :o)
