Pentagonal Patchwork Bowls: a practical evening with Linda Phillips 27th January 2017

Linda Phillips showed us some of her patchwork quilts and examples of her bowls. She had prepared vylene templates which also served as stiffners and gave us a choice of fabrics; patterned for inside the bowl and plain for the outside (to allow us to add some embroidery). Most of us hand sewed the inside layer during the evening, leaving the outside as homework.

Stitch clubs change location in March

In March we are moving stitch clubs to a room at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Skellingthorpe Rd, opposite the petrol station on the Birchwood Avenue junction.

Islamic Tiles – Ceramic into Textile with Kate Steane: stitch club 21st January 2017

The members all chose arabesque designs with interwining lines, leaves and flowers. The tiles were created using acrylic paint on tissue paper, backed with white felt; three different types of glue were used.
