Gold Medal Winners !

 

Well, we had a completely hysterically funny day last week with Arthur and his friends ! He and 7 friends ventured over from the other side of the Pennines for a rag rugging day.

Arthur and Bill came hot-foot from the Tatton Park show, having won Gold for their floral display – a beautiful Venetian themed display entitled ‘Carnivale’. The rest of the group were also very talented artists and florists. I don’t usually have such large groups at home, but we managed to get everyone in !

They’re all threatening to come back again though, oh dear, I haven’t stopped laughing from this visit yet !

Later in the week Hayley and her Mum came to do rag rugging for the day, plus a bit of embroidery. We had a lovely day, and they both went away with projects well underway.

A lot of the creatures were just about completed in the session – just need stitching up and stuffing . Wouldn’t want to meet any of this lot on a dark night ! …….

…I think this has to be the prettiest crazy creature !!

Because people don’t always just get things finished in the allotted time, we have started a new regular Wednesday afternoon group at the shop called ‘Stitchcraft’.

The idea is that you can bring along projects you may be wanting help with – advice on what to do next, finishing off techniques, or just completely forgotten what you were doing by the time you got off the bus back home !

The sessions are 12-30 – 3-00 pm and cost £5, you need to book a place by ringing The Fabbadashery 01422 647574.
