Mr Darcy Loses The Plot

19 Jul

I’ve had lots of fun working again with Avenue Crafters and Crumpsall Craft Crew, plus Full Circle&friends from Oldham Coliseum stitching a patchwork stage backdrop for Lip Service’s hilarious new comedy Mr Darcy Loses the Plot, inspired by the works of Jane Austen.

Thanks to everyone who got involved with this patchwork challenge and if you are interested in adding to this magnificent stage backdrop, just visit Lip Services website for all the info.

Mandy and Lara do patchwork and quilting

4 Nov

Such a pleasure to work with Mandy and Lara at the Beetlefelt studios on another Patchwork and Quilting series.

A month of Monday evenings stitching and chatting and learning new skills, as well as drinking tea and eating cake are definitely a couple of enjoyable hours well spent.

 

And for all of you tempted there is a new patchwork and Quilting series running at Beetlefelt Studios in February, as well as an Appliqué series running in March. Go to http://www.beetlefelt.co.uk/workshops.html to book onto these workshops.

Hope to see you there. Lx

Patchwork and Quilting at Beetlefelt studios

13 Jun

Sadly another Patchwork and Quilting series at Beetlefelt Studios finished on Monday night. But what can I say; we all enjoyed the chat and also got some stitiching done too!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

My Patchwork and Quilting series of four evening classes is a whistle stop introduction to Patchwork and Quilting techniques. Inbetween the chat there are lots of Patchwork demonstrations, with an idea to develop these into a future project.

Lots more creative workshops are on at Beetlefelt studios.

See; http://www.beetlefelt.co.uk/workshops.html

See you soon x
