First Stitches

Saturday 12th April

What a fantastic workshop!  We had a brilliant morning at the Craven Museum and Gallery on Saturday.

The drop-in session attracted  visitors from far and wide.  Some came for specific advice like the lady who had designed her own cross-stitch sampler but wasn't sure how to transfer it to cloth.  Others wanted to learn how to embellish their own sewing projects with a variety of stitches.  Children of all ages proudly showed off their new-found sewing skills to parents and grandparents.

"If I can stitch, then anyone can!"  Was the parting shot from one lady who had stitched the small sampler above.

Best of all, was the opportunity to sit and talk to people about sewing.  We were even asked if we would be running the workshop every every week!  Sadly this was the last session in Skipton but we will be running other similar workshops at Ingleton Overground Underground Festival in May and  Yarndale in September.

Thank you once again for all the Guild members who volunteered on Saturday, for their time, their patience and most of all their enthusiasm for stitching. Well done everyone.
