The first Sharing Session was well attended by busy sewers who are now the proud owners of one or more threadcatchers.

We adjusted patterns to meet our own needs and shared tips for constructing the little bags and weights or pincushions. This session was conducted by Jakki who had researched some patterns and techniques to share, but much of the information came from the attendees themselves.
Interested in a workshop carryall session later in the year, staying with the Workshop theme? (It would need a full day 10am-3pm)

Perhaps you have an interest or a skill that could be developed to run a sharing session?
Some ideas include: Quilting and Technology; curvy piecing; bindings; small projects for charity.
If you have an idea for a workshop skill, project or tricks and tips session that you could organise, anything from 30 minutes to 3 hours, please contact the workshop coordinator.
