Christmas Celebration

There was a great turn out for our Christmas party when embroiderers young and not so young joined together to make Dorset button tree decorations, thanks to Helen for supplying some fantastic buttons and threads and showing us how it is done.

Not only did Aimee make her beautiful decoration with the minimum of help she also helped me with mine and won the raffle!  Well done!

Young Embroiderers

This work is due to be displayed at the Laxey Woollen Mills shortly.  The 'cloud' background was made using a peg loom and the balloons were added at the following workshop, they were made with scraps of material which were then embellished creating these wonderful colourful pieces.

Sari Ribon Bags

Here are some more examples of  beautiful bags that were made out of sari ribbons following the September workshop.
