Term 2 has started!

Term 2 has started and we have hosted classes 5 out of 6 days this week!!
Last Monday 8 eager participants started their beginner classes with Carol Lewis.
Monday night Lorraine hosted a free class for Joy Of Life block of the month participants. The Monday night group all want to learn the "invisible" hand applique with silk threads and freezer paper. A day group starts this coming Tuesday. Spaces are available in both day and evening groups.
Wednesday night we hosted a fibre forum for making cards. Sue and Sylvia led us through hand-colouring, watercolour techniques, mounting, matting and distressed edging of cards. Here are a few photos of participants cards.

I thought I took more photos, but I must have become side-tracked!!

Thursday Carol Lewis started off another enthusiastic beginner's group. Beginners always look a bit scared on the first day - they ALL feel like they must know less than anyone else, but each person is so concerned with their own work, they are not noticing what anyone else is up to yet!!

I hope to post some photos of their first blocks next week.

Friday we had our first UFO class. Make an appointment with yourself. Bring along a project you want to finish and obtain help from Lorraine when you need it. This a great way to meet deadlines such as birthdays.

Today Lorraine taught shortcuts to make Magoo the funky monkey. Aren't the colour choices fantastic?

Okay, they all look like they've had the stuffing knocked out of them, but it hasn't been into them yet! They really do look like they have been partying hard!!
This class was so popular we will run it again next term.
The UFO session for next Friday night (7-9pm) is nearly full. Bookings will be needed, especially at first where everyone will need help to get started. Phone us to secure your place.
Thanks for bringing in your show and tell!! See you in the shop!!
