Sew Creative day 2...Print, collage and stitch

Another busy day in Norfolk in the Sew Creative studio. The ladies were busy printing, collageing and stitching their lovely hangings. It was like an adults playschool with paint flying everywhere, paper blowing in the breeze and the busy hum of sewing machines...proving to be a lovely day.

We had a fabulous day and I would like to thank Barbara and Steven for looking after me and the ladies for making my 2 days so enjoyable xx


Easter weekend off to Norfolk

What a lovely Easter weekend and to finish it off I went to Norfolk to run 2 workshops for Sew Creative. A lovely shop situated in Wroxham Barns, a converted farm that has a number of shops, cafes and children's activities, in fact a full day out for the family. My hubby tagged along (2 days cycling for him) and we had the joy of staying at Overcliffe Lodge enjoying sea views and the most amazing breakfast I have had. Fed and water for the day Barbara picked me up and we headed out. The attic studio is a lovely place to work and once the ladies arrived we began creating our stitched collages. Everyone had a fabulous inspiration image to work from and the translation into a stitched collage was amazing. The ladies worked hard all day fueled by coffee and lunch producing some lovely work.
These are photos of the work before stitching...

All tided up and ready for day 2...Print collage stitch :)

Grassington Embroiderers guild workshop

Well it was a day of all weathers,,,, snow, hail, rain, wind and sunshine, to mane a few, but myself and my friend Jane made it to the rugby club in Grassington for my workshop. Once everyone was settled in and warmed up with a lovely cup of coffee we made a start. As usual the work produced was very different and fabulous.  The ladies worked really quickly and before I knew it the day was over. Again here are the photos of before (I only got a few) and after. I hope some have time to finish them as they have an exhibition coming up and hopefully some of the work will be there on display.
