Our meeting this month was an “inbetweenie”.
At the beginning of the year the committee decided to try alternating new techniques with “stitch and sew” months and this has worked fabulously.
This month we had members working on a variety of techniques and pieces as well as sharing their discoveries and successes.
We are continuing to collect ATCs for our Biannual exhibition, themed for 2013 as ‘Alice in Threadland’. The back of the ATC is a transfer of a playing card and we have multiple creative interpretations of the theme including the Cheshire Cat:
Colourful hand embroidery on bookcover:
Applying techniques to create a casket:
A colouring technique (ask Jenny about this one):
detail and the whole piece incorporating crazy patchwork:
Experimenting with the marble technique in silk:
Op Shop refashioning:
Another application of patchwork techniques:
What an amazingly creative bunch and how great to see all these items being worked on!!
August is felting month and the leaders, Maureen and Helen had little kits available for purchase last meeting. If you want to join in please let me know and I will let Helen know how many kits are needed ($3 each).
The photo was included at the end of last month’s round up and here is some more inspiration:
See you all August 10th, an email will go round with the items you need to bring in addition to the little kit provided.
