It's all been about group crafting here. And what a fine thing it is, to be a part of a togetherness of creative spirit, and to be among wonderful friends.Sewjourn. Another restorative break from daily routines and responsibilities and a chance to spend time with talented, generous, inspiring kindred souls.
And I was inspired.. oh so inspired.... (and don't have the skills or patience for this sort of work, so shall just watch Megan's progress with this one and d r e a m ....).
machine-envy this trip, on my part. Talk about fancy-schmantzy!
a Mod Bag. Prolific sewing by all.
Today we had a curriculum day at the girleen's school - a student-free day. Since I have child-free weekends and we have a very important birthday this week, I thought my lateral best and organised a party for this morning.
Although all manner of card-making, beading, stickers, stamps, glitter and paints were on offer, the main activity that took their fancy was SEWING. The kids used fabric markers to draw on cotton sheeting and we made the artwork into cushions.
I had a brainwave yesterday, which also slots into the "crafting with friends" theme ...possibly because I was still a bit loved-up from the weekend and wanted to share the joy.
Since I'm free the first weekend of December, and I don't feel like travelling or spending time setting up the website/PayPal for a scheduled class, if any group of friends would like to book a class with me in Northcote, I'm available for a private xmas-crafting class. I can take up to 6 people in my studio, and provide mulled wine, mince tarts and some great gift-crafting skills and ideas. It'll be a flat day rate that is cheaper than the per-person rate of the usual classes (because we won't have as much admin to do). First come, only one served. You choose the class you want to do. Just a thought.... Contact the office for details.
