Workt by Hand 2014

This was once again another great gathering of new and old friends spending time together learning new techniques and creating some amazing work. Our time together began with some of the ladies taking the extra class where time was spent embellishing a pincushion. Several were able to complete them by days end.

The next pics are of the teachers pieces used as inspiration for the students to use as a starting point to create their own work.All of the techniques used are taught through out the week. Ali's -

Sally's -

Stores are set up for students to find those extras special things they "must have"

Extra samples done by Sally and myself to give more options to the students.

One of my favorite parts, show and tell from the students

Amazing works in progress. It never ceases to amaze me when 38 women are given the same pattern and the opportunity to share and learn new techniques that there is always 38 totally different and wonderful pieces created. Not to mention the friendships formed and maintained.
Another great year!
