stitching, quilting, fabric, projects
More beginners started a new hobby in Ashford this week 🙂
The lovely Clair at Emporia Fabric and Crafts hosted two beginners workshops. With fabric included in the cost of the class we started by choosing colour schemes and combinations from her expanding stock.
By lunchtime everyone had completed one block and had rotary cut fabric for two more.
In the afternoon, triangles were mastered, stars, shooflies and donuts were stitched together.

With plans to continue adding blocks at home to complete cushions, table and bed runners and throws, I believe they can now officially be called Patchworkers 🙂
Lovely working with you ladies, welcome to the world of patchwork. I hope you go on to enjoy making lots more!
fyi – Clair is also opening a pop-up crafters market next door on November 12th with local makers. So if you are looking to buy local, pop-in and support them. You may pick-up some unusual handmade Christmas presents and a little something for yourself too!
