My classes have finished, all the finishing projects have been delivered and even some new kits and special orders have been prepared for those optimistic people who hope they will have some stitching time over the holidays!
However I find it a wonderful time to try and catch up.
The Spring Class programme is available, including two new courses - a two day Jacobean embroidery class and a Lettering class. The Lettering class is a repeat as it was such fun with everyone planning and working their own ideas.
Plans for the 2015 Italian trip are almost sorted, it will be June. Like before the total cost will include everything except the travel to the closest Italian airport. This means that people can join us from their own area and possibly add on side trips. A stop over in London is good as is adding on Rome, Florence or the island of Sicily. Do ask me if you need suggestions!
I am also finishing up some new designs; I had the poche vide finished - a poche vide is an elegant name for a small tray where gentlemen can overnight their keys or change OR a lady
can lay her jewellery! Am so in love with the bands of design I plan to do a boxed cushion will a central panel so more of the bands can be seen.
A talented quilter, Linda Seward, has her group, London Quilters exhibition at the Swiss Cottage Library, till the 4th January to celebrate her new book 'The Ultimate Guide to Art Quilting'. Judging by their previous shows it should be most interesting
