On Sunday I was lucky enough to get a place on a one day workshop with Jean arranged by my branch (Lutterworth) of the Embroiderers’ Guild.

It was an excellent day as always with Jean and I learned lots of new tricks, using my Embellishing machine. The topic was all about textures and layers and the subject matter was fields and hedgerows. Here are some images from the day, firstly of Jean’s work and then some from the members.

Some were total beginners with the embellisher and I think there are quite a few new ones being bought now! šŸ™‚

Of course in a day we couldn’t start on big pieces of work so we were encouraged to make little gems showing techniques.

Jean is a really fun person to be with and a very giving tutor. I should love to meet her little grandson who loves to play in her workroom.

A most enjoyable day.
