We have made some progress with our letters that will eventually make up our Group Banner.    
These have been individually designed and stitched using a defined palette of colours so that they

Burning Issues II Workshop

One of our members, Heather Martin reported on our latest workshop.

We had an enjoyable and creative day with tutor Margaret Beal on 16th March.  She specialises in the use of a fine-tipped soldering tool to bond, cut and mark synthetic fabrics. 

The results of the class were stunning and we inspired to go home and try some more ideas.
