NEXT MEETINGS - MAY
SATURDAY 9TH MAY -
Our usual meeting day will be preceded by an early morning session from 11.30a.m when Sue Chisnall and Tracey Ramsey will have all the Buttie Box patterns and inside ‘trinkets’ samples for you to work with.
Karen Hurrell has said that she will be available for the members who attended her Beading workshop day, if they need help with progressing their work further, or have problems that need to be sorted.
Monica Selway will also be bringing materials, threads, card etc., to make up kits for ‘Rainbow Squares’ which will be sold at Manchester Central in September, when the Region’s squares go on show. She needs some help with making up the kits and will be at the meeting from 12.30.
The afternoon meeting - "Indigo - the King of Colours" a talk by Magie Relph.
Quote from Magie's leaflet: "A talk to help you discover the beauty and excitement of Indigo. I'll cover a little bit of the history of this fascinating dye and introduce some of the patterning techniques used around the world."
Magie will also be bringing "The African Fabric Shop" and selling fabric, beads, buttons etc from all over Africa.
I visited her stand at Regional Day today and there was a wonderful array of fabrics and other bits which I’m sure will be of huge interest to you all. I noticed some lovely Indigo bags – yummy!!
Looks as though we might need to bring our purses, so start saving now!!!! Just 2 weeks to go.
EXTRA WORKSHOP DAY – REMINDER
ENCAUSTIC ART WITH SUE TYLDESLEY.
SUNDAY 10th MAY – 10a.m to 4p.m as usual. We now only have 4 or 5 places left. Contact Karen Hurrell to book.
You will need to wear old clothes or bring a large apron just in case of ‘drips’ of wax.
Sue will bring the card and all the waxes at a small charge, and will also provide the irons, but you will need to bring some kitchen roll and any card mounts you want to use.
You will also need a variety of scrap fabric pieces in different weights but not too heavy – calico, polyester, satin, silk etc. – in cream and white (only smallish – no bigger than A3) .
For those who work quickly you can bring your usual hand sewing kit and threads.
Look forward to seeing you then.
