Knit Wits Quilt Day 8th September

Thursday the 8th of September I held my first
Patchwork and Quilting Classes at Knit Wits
of Dereham.
I had eight students in the morning and
eight in the afternoon.
These first classes were for beginners.
After explaining a basic sewing kit and showing lots
of inspiration on strips.
The first project was a Striped Needlecase.
As you can see above everyone did fantastic
for their first lesson and in only two and a quarter hours.
Well Done everyone!
Bill and Fiona have made a lovely classroom next

I have taught Mixed Media Textiles @ The Gallery Dereham

enjoy it as much at Knit Wits.
