I have been attending my local Embroiderer’s Guild (Farnborough) for a year or so now, we meet monthly and our group is a slightly unusual in that we focus on teaching each other practical skills rather than inviting speakers. Last month we made coiled bowls and before that temari balls.
Being a feltmaker it was no surprise when I was asked if I would teach the group to make a piece of felt that we could then embroider at the following meeting. It was quite a tall order, 13 ladies, 11 of whom had never handled wool tops before, let alone made felt and we only had 2.5 hours to complete our projects in…
Most embraced a landscape for their first piece of felt, rather fitting with the Q1 challenge although, of course they did not know about it
Others took a more abstract approach….
I can’t wait to see how they look after the addition of some embroidery next month, I have great plans for machine embroidery on mine, it is going to be a lot of fun!
If you are local and interested in the Farnborough (UK) Embroiderer’s Guild we would love to hear from you, please email Sue and Anne at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
