Saturday 11th January saw the start to this years programme for the young embroiderers. Six lively young stitchers joined us in an applique representation of a pomegranate. They could choose from a variety of red fabrics for the outside of the fruit, and yellow fabrics for the centre, with a few sequins for a bit of bling! They were also encouraged to use lots of different stitches as decoration. Some of the youngsters were new to embroidery and enjoyed learning how to do french knots and chain stitch. There was lots of chatter ( I even learned some new riddles) and even though the pieces were not finished, it was lovely to see how different they were. They were happy to take them home to finish off and we hope to see them finished at the next meeting. We also did some work on our joint Tudor project so all in all, it was a busy and lively session.
Next meeting February 8th.
