One of our talented members Carole, gave a workshop for members on 'Shisha Mirror Work'.
We were given a piece of calico and had to stitch round a circle of mirror making sure it could not escape from the stitches.
After learning how to secure our pieces if mirror we were supposed to make a Shisha brooch during the workshop but we seemed to do more talking than sewing. Can that be possible? Plus we had a new 2 / 3 weeks old new member come to visit so she rather took our minds off the sewing.

Some members busy sewing. It was a lovely sunny day even though two people decided to wear a coat!
Thank you Carole,we had a lovely, enjoyable afternoon.
