Charnwood WIGs

During our June meeting, we had the pleasure of welcoming Carolyn Boulter of ‘Patchwork for Pleasure’ to teach us how to create our very own needlework owl paperweights. Carolyn made the process very easy by being super prepared with supply kits for every member (including ready-sewn pieces)! With her patient nature and brilliant teamwork by those members who are more skilled in sewing, we were well on our way. Most of the stitches we used were the basics – running stitch and over stitch, with some of us adding our own flair! It certainly made for one of our quieter meetings as we were all concentrating so much! See what you think of our finished pieces – all I can say is that we had a hoot!
Why not come along and see what we get up to for yourself? We meet at 7.30pm at Beedles Lake Golf Club.
Thursday 29th August: Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People talk plus Handbag Amnesty
