Desperation Week 2015

We have just held Desperation Week for 2015. This is the time where members get together for a week in the CQ room to sew on a project they are ‘desperate’ to finish. It is very productive as you can see from the images.

Last year we had the witch finger tool introduced, this year it was a quilted scissor/ tool holder. The pattern was made from folding a piece of A4 paper. Some members were totally captivated and went into a production line or made smaller versions. Full instructions are on the Miss Sews-it-all blog, here.
