Vinny Stapley “Zoomed In”

Vinny inspired our members to take a much closer look at fauna. Everyone enjoyed the day and their results are amazing. I love the variation of texture!

Holly Parr   3D Beaded Flowers

Holly Parr designs and creates exquisite beaded flowers and we had the pleasure to welcome her to our meeting where she guided us through making a sprig of bluebells.

Rosie James -“Stitch Draw”- figurative machine stitching,

Her engaging work focuses on individual characters in crowds who are then depicted in stitch before being collated into a new background. Thank you Rosie for sharing your journey with us. Keep an eye out for her book with the same title.

Elizabeth Ashdown “Passementerie: an endangered yet thoroughly contemporary craft”

A very enjoyable presentation by Elizabeth, providing a totally fascinating insight into this technique for producing braids, trims and tassels.
