The session before our usual 3rd week closing was the busiest so far - nine lovely ladies turned up and many projects were made. It was truly fantastic.
All tables were occupied, as you'll see from the pics below, with Rosemary and Parsis taking advantage of the double width tables to pattern cut.
A busy day at the tables!

Marianna brought in the most darling skirt she'd been working on for her daughter (see below). Traced out of BurdaStyle Magazine May edition she said it was straight-forward. The piping and covered button detail on the pockets make the skirt and the enviable top-stitching (no wobbles) is a delight to behold.

Delphina completed McCalls 6319 in a soft, pink jersey. The asymmetrical neckline gives it a nice '80's feel as does the shoulder draping. She gave it an 'easy' rating and will be making another so watch this space!
