I had the wonderful pleasure of spending last Sunday at Stitch Gathering 2015. It was another special day filled with lovely people who love to sew. I taught all day this year – mouse comforters in the morning and workshops to teach orange peel applique and freeform/improvised piecing techniques in the afternoon. It gives me such a buzz to see everyone concentrating and working away to make their various projects………and I love that they all put their own unique stamp on their work. One pattern turns into 20 completely different interpretations. Once again I pretty much failed to capture many pictures of the day but I did manage to get photos of 15 of the 20 mouse comforters – the other mice were just as lovely but a little more elusive!
I wished I could have joined in with the other classes – I really would have liked to take part in them all! Jo is a master at putting together a great day – and she also has a persuasive way with sponsors so we, once again, had a great goody bag to take home! Have a look here and here for the sponsor list and do check them out, their products are fantastic.
I’m going to hold a giveaway for the majority of the contents of the goody bag……for your chance to win the goodys shown in the photo below just comment on this post. If you’d like a second entry just share my instagram photo using the hashtag #fpstitchgathering2015 – I’ll post it shortly and you’ll fing it on my IG account www.instagram.com/forestpoppy
Entries will close in 2 weeks, Thursday 15 October. Good luck!
