Felting Fun

Jane and Lynette shared their skills and led a felting session at a recent Out of the Fold day. We had great fun felting pebbles and working on larger pieces.  Watch out for these being made up into finished pieces in the future.

Tomato Patch

Jane always offers a highly original approach to an Out Of The Fold challenge and this year is no exception. Taking inspiration from a traditional patchwork block Jane has used tomato puree tubes and wire to create a 'quilt'. It has to be seen to be believed. So come along and see for yourself.

Moving On - Strip Patchwork

Lynne has taken the idea of traditional Strip patchwork but interpreted it in a really creative way as part of her series of Japanese inspired quilts. This tiny piece does not do justice to this stunning work so please come along to the exhibition to see the whole thing - it's fabulous!
