Our June meeting saw us learning Sewing Skills with the lovely ladies from The White Room last week. Nicky and Donna brought along their sewing machines and a host of embellishing bits and bobs to help us sew and transform a calico shopping bag. We hope everyone enjoyed the evening and your bags are being admired by your family and friends.
Also, congratulations to the winners of our ‘Best Bag’ competition.  After some difficult judging, Nicky and Donna awarded First Place to Shana Maier-Taplin for her ‘ fantastic inside pocket, Second Place to Olive Segre for her ‘wonderful appliqué’ and Third Place to Jeanne Ridgeway for her ‘pretty heart design’Well done to you all.
