Yellow Poppies Workshop…..

Yellow Poppies wet felted wall hanging

Earlier this week I travelled up to East Keswick, a small village just a few miles from Wetherby, to deliver the first of a two-day Yellow Poppies Workshop for Nicola Hulme at Simply Stitch.

14 ladies attended the workshop, some had previous experience of felting while for others it was to be their first time.  

Once the basic techniques had been explained students were given the option to recreate my design or to develop their own and it was good to see some of the ladies working on their own designs and alternative colour schemes.

The time flew by, it was a lovely day with good company and Simply Stitch proved to be a hidden gem! The beautiful studio is large, bright and very well equipped. There is a fantastic choice of classes and courses run by Nicola Hulme, including patchwork, machine sewing, purses & bag making, hand embroidery and much more! The studio also hosts regular visits from well known specialist tutors in a variety of subjects. On sale are up to the minute patchwork fabrics and all the other essentials such as threads, wadding, notions, etc.

Nicola was a terrific host and ensured that the tea, coffee, biscuits and cake kept flowing!  Watch this space for photos from next weeks workshop including images of the finished wall hangings.
