On Saturday a group of us attended a very enjoyable workshop with Sue Sissling. We welcomed some members from the Lytham branch and all had good fun.
We learnt how to make stump work faces. These are 3D faces which, by stuffing and stitch work, stand proud from the backing fabric. Sue brought some examples and a selection of books for inspiration and advice. Much needed !!

Even though we were mostly beginners we all managed to complete at least one face. No mean feat for a workshop day - as you know!The faces we made were all completely different, many shapes, sizes and colours and we were all surprised by how they developed and scarily took on a life of their own!
|Hair and accessories add glamour!|
I missed the list of requirements but Kathryn and Jill kindly supplied me with everything I needed and Sue brought a big stash for us to delve into. I think this illustrates the good fellowship you find in our group. We spent a good part of the day laughing and sewing - sharing each other's ideas and admiring each other's work.

Kathryn brought some frames to sell for our Branch funds and if you were lucky enough to get one they certainly enhanced your work.
All in all it was a great day with Sue and we all went home with a new skill. S.
