Today's skills sharing session produced some Christmas decorations and Indian inspired bags. These red tree decorations use simple running stitches as used in Kantha embroidery. Carol Condliffe provided members with written instructions, red linen weave fabric and some wadding. Five members took on the challenge and here are 3 of the half finished along with Carol's example.
Meanwhile on the other table Chris Harris was introducing an Indian mini bag as featured in a Stitches issue from 2010.
