March 2019

Our February meeting was cancelled because of the weather. At our March meeting, Suzanne lead us through the steps to create Dorset buttons using plastic rings and perle cotton thread.

Here are a few completed ones by various guild members.
She also gave us the instructions to add shanks to the back.

Suzanne passed around this beautiful little quilt with some of her buttons and embroidered embellishments.
At our next meeting, Valerie will do a workshop where we will create very cute sheep using Lopi yarn woven through plastic canvas. She also assigned 'homework' in preparation for the class. Members are asked to bring about 60m of Lopi (or other worsted or bulky yarn) and a big crochet hook.
